Footboard into Bench

By Jessica Wollin, Owner/Designer at Flipping Unbelievable in Green Bay, WI.

This was previously part of a bed frame, but I thought it better suited as a bench.  To give it an update, I painted it in Lamp Black milk paint, then added an oak board for seating and stained it in Brown Mahogany water based stain. I left the wheels on for better mobility.  Narrow enough for an entryway, or great for additional seating in a dining room.
