Bench that was a Bed!

At first it was a REALLY OLD bed then it broke.  It ended up at the thrift store for 5 dollars.  I found it and thought from reading other blogs  found here , that Mr. Sensible and I could surely do this.

Here is what it looked like when I found it all sad and lonely.

This is a picture of just how broken it was.  Where the side rail should go was completely destroyed.

Here is how it looked in progress.

You can clearly see the “new wood” and where it was added.
Here is the finished product.

  It turned out really well painted white then distressed.  If you were wondering this is a full size bed.  Which no one seems to want anymore and works perfectly for this application!
