Yellow Squash Bench

This is one of my favorite benches. I think I say this about all the benches I make.
I love the yellow and the black together. They are a great combination.
The detail is so fun.
Here she is primed and I call all the pieces she, too!!!
This is before!! It's always amazing that you can start out with something so plain and make it into something completely different.


  1. ooooh, LOVE your "bedbench", and LOVE the color!

  2. I love how you repurposed the bed into a bench. This is so much fun and I love the colors you chose!

  3. This is lovely! It wasn't much before but you definitely saw the potential. Really pretty :)

  4. I really love your bench!! What a great color combo as well :)
    I'm a new follower & can t wait to see more!!

  5. I've had a twin bed I got for 8.00 that has the wagon wheel on the heaboard.I was thinking about redoing it in a pirate them. black red gold and painting the wheel brown... now I can take it to anoter level and make it a pirate seat with pirate print cushions!!! Yeay!!! Thanks for the mini tutorial Ive seen these around and been wondering how they were made. Now that I see its not to complicated I'm ready to go!!!! I love your creativity!!!

  6. Another adorable piece! I used the EXACT same black/white damask fabric on my dining room chairs (but those are painted bright blue). - Rachel
