My wife told me about this great idea of building a storage bench from a toddler bed headboard and footboard. We found a free toddler bed and then bought the supplies that I needed to get started.
First was to cut the footboard in half and line it up with the headboard.
Then I started building the bench seat/storage box.
After putting the box on I framed out the seat.
With the seat and hinge on I was ready to stain and seal.
I chose to use natural color stain and seal it with polyurethane.
The boys seem to like it. I guess it won't be a surprise on Christmas morning.
Now what should the kids keep in it?
