This is the interior of the bench that I have posted on my profile page. I bought the frame at a dear community lady's estate sale. She was so sad the day of the sale, but a few weeks later, I was on my way home from a craft show in a neighboring town, and I drove by the apartment where she now lives, she was sitting outside, and I had it on my trailer, so I just had to stop by and show it to her. She was thrilled to see what I had done with her old frame. I think I paid a dollar for it. One of the legs was rusted off at the bottom, but I just took part of the pipe that I cut out of the center of the footboard, and repaired it during fabricating the bench frame.
I could tell a lot more about my adventures in these projects, but will save that for later. The design I began with is pretty much what I remember from the ones in Sumner, WA, but I have added features, like the storage seats, seats made from the actual wooden bed slats (WAY COOL, but none of them pictured here. I will change out pictures later, and show that.
Pattern or design used:
unknown, from a floral/garden accent shop in Sumner, WA
