This is a labor of love story.
No really I’m serious 😂
I have wanted to build my very own headboard bench because it looked cool and easy…and I did in less than a year. Geesh.
hoarding collecting head and footboards like they were going out of style… and honestly they were! I thought EVERYONE wanted a bench as much as I did! Ok that’s a bit overdramatic but that’s how I felt. So fine. 😜
I found these matching head and footboards at ReStore last summer. The full set with the railings…times 2 (!!) were 20.00. Score..right?!
I knew I wanted to start with a cottage white one. Neutral colors sell the best right??
It looked sooooo plain though…
So I added a bit of coastal flair…Bit of Sugar and Gray Morning both by Behr in DIY chalkpaint and Manatee Gray by Dixie Belle Mineral Paint.
Just a bit of color made it much more interesting don’t you think?
I sanded it a bit to give it a more shabby look and sealed it with Dixie Belle Clear Coat.
Pretty for the front porch..or maybe and entryway? Definitely has a cool and coastal vibe which I love.
Tell me your thoughts as I’d love to hear them!
Thank you for following!
