LONG AGO - bench built

I stumbled across this photo from the past.
This is a bench I built many long years ago from an antique bed.
That was in another life.

I sold it when the second part of my life started
I was cleansing and let it go for less then $80.
The next time I went into my favorite antique
store, there she was 4 sale for a lot more.

  1. Oooouuuch! That's always a bummer. I am visiting today from Transformation Thursday! I am really enjoying your blog (just took your fantastic home tour!) Happy to be your newest follower!
    Best Wishes and God Bless!

  2. Love that bench - great job! I'm new to your blog and LOVE it! New follower!!

  3. My daughter just moved out to start her own life at 20. She didn't want her full size headboard and foot board...I will be making a bench like this out of hers next Monday with my handyman. I love this one but I know we can't always keep everything we make. Sorry you let it go so cheaply. It's a beaut.

  4. The new Pottery Barn catalog has returned to those same type stripes and flowers. And, I bought a blue striped duvet last week at a Pottery Barn store, with the exact material on your bench seat, (which wasn't in the catalog).

    Truly, everything old is new again!

  5. wow...don't you hate that...I listed a Entertainment Center on Craigslist for free...next day the lady reposted it for 80 bucks!!! Beautiful bench!!
