I designed this bench using an old painted single headboard and the bottom drawer to a vintage armoir (that was all that was left of it). My husband used old wood to make the seat and we added legs and some side corbels and ended up with a pretty bench with storage. Can be seen at Reminisce, Paso Robles, CA.
