How to Make a Bench from a Headboard Footboard?

Answer

If you have a decorative bed frame that is wood, you can recycle it by making it into a wooden bench with just a few tools. Cut the foot board in half to make the side arms of your bench. You will be making the seat and back of the new bench out of the headboard. To attach the headboard for the arms of the bench, build a simple box for the seat support and attach your wood to the seat. You will need extra pieces of wood to build the seat frame.
