Awesome New Bench from Old Headboard & Footboard

So I picked up an old headboard 
& footboard at Goodwill for $3.99.
And of course I had to convert it into a bench.
Well, I had a little help from the hub's...
but I picked out the paint color and 
painted it all by myself, hee, hee!
Here's a few shots of the transformation.
















check out this awesome paint color!




Isn't this 
The . Most . Perfect . Yellow?

It's like a can full of

SUNSHINE

Drumroll please...

Ta da!













Yes, I was a little camera happy!

Here are a couple of shots without the pillows.

Sarah - I love that Yellow Bench and the way it contrasts up against the home. Very creative use of an old bed.
Hey, were you aware that your GFC doesn't 'link' back to your site. Go into the editing options within GFC and connect your site to the picture that people click on. I know how to google search it, but many don't know or won't bother. Just a helpful handy Renae with her fyi for the day :D

How awesome! Found your link via Simply Designing (I added a post about turning a bed frame into a bench too --too cool!!). Now that's a very pretty headboard, you were really lucky to get this one for just 3.99, that's impressive, and you've done some beautiful work.

The yellow is the perfect color. I do more of a shabby chic style, so most of my things turn out white or gray but I'm loving your little gem. Thanks for sharing your work, it's beautiful,

This looks AMAZING! I missed this project because my Google Reader hasn't been getting any of your updates since your summer fonts post :( I even tried resubscribing.

I would love to know what the paint colour you used is because it is such a perfect shade of yellow.

Happy Canada Day!
