This bed was really sweet, but if we're to be honest, beds are tough to sell, right? You can't really set them up in a store unless the store is huge and they just don't have the same effect when they are not set up. So a friend said "make it into a bench!". Grand idea...but I don't do power tools (yet). But my father-in-law does and I put him to work with my vision.
After a lot of screws, glue, paint and distressing:
The cushions are from Target...ideally I would've gotten custom cushions, but since I don't know what the buyer will want, I just got these for staging.
This bench will be at my son's preschool auction. It's such a versatile piece. Garden, sunroom, kids room, kitchen nook...where would you use a piece like this?
