before & after: faith’s church pew headboard

by Grace Bonney

let me start by saying that today’s first before & afters is probably one of my favorite we’ve ever run. partly because it combines my two favorite furniture types (benches and headboards) and mainly because it’s so darn crafty and clever. d*s reader faith buss stumbled upon a set of 3 church pews at a local garage sale and managed to bring home the full set for only $25! faith knew she wanted to transform them into something different so she and her husband picked up a pair of tall casters (to give the bench height) at a junk shop in louisiana and decided to attach them to the bottom to create a rolling headboard! after cleaning the frame and cutting a space for the bed to sit inside the bench, faith and her husband created a completely unique and completely custom headboard! if i could drag one of these suckers up my four flights of stairs and behind my bag, i would do it in a heartbeat. i can’t get enough of this project- well done, faith and family! two very enthusiastic thumbs up!
