Gloomy Gray to Bright Blue Headboard Bench!

3
Looks like surgery, doesn’t it? 
This is how the headboard benches look during the building phase and for some odd reason one of my favorite parts of the transformation process.  

I guess this is the stage where I can finally start to see the potential where the old furniture turns the corner from

 drab to fab!
Here is the before: 
Ugly
Dirty
Dingy
Gloomy and Gray
but with a little bit of elbow grease and a lot of surgery in the shop
Lots of clamps, screws, drills and Tylenol later 
and the miraculous touch of paint
-Annie Sloan Napoleonic Blue-
-Minwax Polycrylic Sealer-
and the Gloomy Gray disappears
and transpires into 
Bright and Beautiful! 
So much more cheerful, don’t you think?

Definitely a cure for the Monday Blues! 
Have a great week!

    I love this bench. I'm curious though. You photograph your benches outdoors, but can the old headboard and the ASCP withstand rain and sun and snow of outdoors? Do you seal them against the elements somehow? Thanks

    Fantastic makeover! You have a great talent for seeing treasures in trash! I never would have been able to figure out a bench from those pieces of bed. Love the color too!

    Wow! You did a fabulous job with that makeover. Its hard to tell that the bench was even a headboard! Looks great and that blue color is so pretty!
