I'm infatuated with upcycling.

Awhile back, I came upon this great post and knew I had to try one for myself. I've grown to love the transformation so much so, that I've made a few more and each one is so special.
If you have a bed frame that is special to you, one that was handed down for generations, or your baby's first big boy bed, but no longer have a use for it's intended purpose, re-purpose it to a fabulous bench. I do not have a tutorial this time, but I'll make sure to add one the next time I get down and dirty with a bed frame. There are tons of tutorials online, but I found Shaunna's tutorial to fit the bill.
This cutie was my first. I didn't have a spare bed hanging around, and since I was revving to go, I purchased a used twin headboard and footboard on Craigslist. I love the way it turned out. I have it for sale in my shop. Gosh, I love to upcycle. One less item in our landfills.
My friend Jess no longer had room for her little girl's bed, but it was something she couldn't part with. I was thrilled to give her a useful piece of furniture that is near and dear to her heart.
