Originally made without the headboard, this bench still looked like a coffee table to my other half (I dont use the term better half!).
I have to admit I like it better with a back. I didnt paint it because I liked its chippy look.

When I saw the topless table in a local Goodwill Store for $10, I had to have it but it wasn't going to fit in my car. The next day I dragged husband Chip and his truck with me and the price had been reduced to $5! My original plan was to just add a cushion, but when Chip saw it, he said, "It looks like a coffee table." Ouch!
