I bought this headboard/footboard at a yard sale maybe four or five years ago
thinking it would make a great garden bench.
So it sat in the garage and got buried and then uncovered when we'd
clean out the garage and then buried again.
A couple of weeks ago the Mister decided he needed a fun little EASY
project to work on so we dug out the headboard and footboard.
He cut the footboard in half.
The footboard makes the arms of the bench.
The ones we saw on the internet or in cute little stores used L brackets,
but he thought pegs would work better and certainly look better.
He was right.
He used some wood we had in our stash for the seat.
I think it turned out pretty cute.
He thinks it needs to be painted.
I think it needs to stay chippy.
He doesn't really understand about chippy paint.
We'll see what happens.
I still need to make it a foam cushion. Probably I'll wait til next spring to do that.
What do you think? Paint it or leave it?
