DIY - Remake your Bed

The bed becomes a charming settee when parts are reassembled.

  1. Cut the footboard in half vertically to form arms for the settee.
  2. Cut a piece of MDF or Plywood for the seat and a piece for a front rail.
  3. Assemble all pieces with wood screws and glue.
  4. Sand, prime, and paint the settee.
  5. When dry, add nailhead trim.

For a cushion, wrap a foam pad cut to size with batting and a throw. Or sew the throw into a cover for a more structured look
