    Repurposed Headboard turned into bench

    So I’ve always wanted to tackle the headboard repurposed into bench project. Luckily, I married a wonderful handy-man who loves to help with my projects.

The moment I saw this Rocking Chair, I knew it had great potential. For this real wood (and quite heavy) piece I’ve decided to experiment with the Cottage-white […]
