Hey gang- Kevin here!
I’ve had a few requests to post a headboard bench tutorial, so here goes! (Please keep in mind- I am not a professional carpenter by any means, and I was completely winging it on this one as usual!)
I started out by plugging in this guy…
We call him “Jaws”. 🙂
I gathered up a bunch of wood and pieces of beadboard paneling we had laying around from past projects- as well as a tape measure, a pen, some wood screws, an electric drill/screwdriver and a square. (which is actually shaped like a triangle- go figure)
Once I was finished putting it all together, Layla painted it and distressed the edges…
I naturally gravitate to this spot now whenever I put on my shoes before leaving the house.
It’s also become a popular spot for my…..hmmmm….let’s see…..uh…..culinary-challenged wife to sit and watch me cook. 🙂
I love seeing her sitting there- knowing that I (somehow) created this neat little seat for her so she could sit and talk to me (a mile a minute) about all the other things we could build together.
Hey, she might not know how to cook, but she sure has a way with junk!
P.S. Here’s a video I shot while making this guy!
