Perfect for my little princess.
Yes, it's a bench made from a bed...sort of. I built this out of a full size bed frame but rather than constructing the standard bed-bench I decided to make it bigger. I wanted something outdoors that was really comfortable. What better than an big bench with a mattress and lots of throw pillows, right?
So much for my comfy outdoor bench.
My daughter confiscated it and turned it into a toddler bed for my little grand-princess.
What color should it be painted?
Just in case you're wondering about the construction...
I built a frame and attached the headboard. The foot board was cut down the middle and attached. Then I attached left over IKEA bed slats and dropped in a $10 waterproof Craigslist crib mattress.
Total cost. $35 for bed and mattress
Appx. $10 for wood and hardware.
