Just finished this one today,I lined the inside with a Pergo type laminated flooring, the medallion in middle of the headboard is a curtain or drape hold back.
Another use for old louvered doors
Great job! I have 2 shutters here that came from my mom's place and getting a lot of ideas how to use them.
@ifantail ~ This one looks good too! Was this one made with the same instructions as for Bench # 22 ?? I like what you did with the louvered doors on the front of the bench. Was there any particular size of the louvered door you used for the front? Was the back of this bench also made from a twin size headboard? I would like to see all the benches you made. Great job!
Jennie, I use 15" closet doors or 1/4" plywood bead-board for natural or stained finishes & 1/4" fiber bead-board for the painted ones.I have also glued cloth that matches the seat to the front, I only use twin size headboards, if it comes with a good foot-board I can use it for the arm rests. The first one that I made is at end of my bed, my wife stores extra sheets & blankets in it.
