About This Project

This was my bed handed down by two other siblings growing up a number of years ago. It is a Jenny Lind which I cut the foot board in half, attached to the head board, used the side rails for the frame on the front and sides and attached with my Kreg Jig. The underside frame was from left over pine trim from a window project and the seat was from leftover paneling from a bathroom remodel. I painted the bed with a satin black spray paint and left the seat as is.

Estimated Cost: 
1 can of spray paint 3.99 all other material left from previous remodels
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Intermediate
Type of Wood: 
pine and maple
Finish Used: 
satin black spray paint
clips

LOVE THIS!

I have a twin head and foot board I got at Savers (thrift store) a few months ago to do just this. Just have to get my other projects out of the way (and out of the hubby's way as well) first. Great job!

Nice!

I also have this type of project on my TTB list, using an old waterfall style bed frame. I already cut it apart and everything. Seeing how well your's turned out might just give me that little push I need to get mine finished. Thanks for sharing!

I LOVE IT!

This turned out great. I did my first curbside stop and pulled an old crib out of someone's trash pile last summer. I just happened to be borrowing my mom's truck at the time...If I owned a truck, there would be no stopping my hoarding! Your bench turned out excellent. I plan on making mine a bench too. My husband has been complaining about the old crib leaning against the house in the driveway for a while now. Yep, better get started.
