Crib Bench

Well as I was clearing out the basement I came across my sons old crib,by the way hes now 8.I thought to myself this is a pretty cool looking headboard so what could I do with it? Then it hit me "A BENCH". So I got some old wood and a saw and just winged it and my family were flabbergasted when they came home to see my work in action!

Yes I built it in my living room!Didn't have any plans I just measured and cut.There also was alot of drilling going on.Did I mention the nails too? When "finally" I was done with all the building of this massive bench and ready to paint! YEAH!!! I made my own chalk paint and once again I winged it with that as well but I loved the rustic black finish. OK are you ready? Without further Ado.... My finished Crib Bench!Please let me know what you think! Thanks, Deidre~

Wow, this is pretty amazing. You did a great job! And...don't get discouraged in blogland! It's a journey and takes awhile to build up the followers and "blog" friendships. But, it will definitely happen. You sound like a great person with many talents and ideas to share! Can't wait to see what else you come up with!
