I never pass up the opportunity to get an old set of headboard/foot-board. There are so many ideas to re-purpose them! I made this black twin headboard bench for my favorite couple: my parents 🙂
The Making Of A Beautiful Black Twin Headboard Bench
It started out as a plain old twin bed I found by the curb a long time ago. There was noting special about it, other than my idea to make a special gift for mom to enjoy on her porch.
It now is updated and is a sweet welcome to my mom and dad’s home…
Of course, I love to show you a little bit of the build process. Just one before pic for this one though, because I’d like to jump right over to the finished product!
I painted it in a deep dark black and embellished it with a wood applique that my dad painted silver.

And here it is sitting pretty on the front porch. It is a perfect fit!
I love how Mom changes up the pillows depending on the holiday or season. Just a simple way to keep things fresh, without spending a lot of money.
Love the birds!
Beautiful decorative pillows
While I think you can easily make your own pillows, not everyone has the time or inclination to do so. That doesn’t mean your benches need to be bare. There are so many beautiful pillows ready to buy! Here are a few of my favorite pillows you can buy from Amazon.
