I'm not sure if I like how simple it is. I think I'm going to add some crown molding to the bottom. I can even add some square wood and a nob to the front to make it look like it has drawers. This designing furniture thing is kinda fun.
So I went ahead and added the crown molding....my husband showed me how to use the miter saw.
I made it without my hubby! Check out all the other projects by clicking the link!
This picture is where my inspiration came from. I love the simplicity of this bench but I don't know that I can pull it off in my room. But I think I did a pretty good job copying the look of it.
And here is a picture of it in the beginning. Lowes cut the wood for me so really all you need is a drill and a lot of paint for this project. It only took me about 2 hours to build and the wood for it was $12.97! Wow, what a deal!And the coolest part is.....
this looks greatReplyDelete
I'm amazed at what you were able to make at such a low cost. Did Lowe's cut the wood for free?ReplyDelete
I haven't been brave enough to try one of the knock off wood projects, but yours turned out great. What plan was this from that site? I love the molding you added, I need one of these for the foot of my bed too. Great job!ReplyDelete
You did such a great job. I am totally impressed. How fun to have made your own hope-chest/bench. I am totally inspired and now want to make one too. Were you nervous to use a saw? This is why I haven't done anything with wood. The big saws scare me:<ReplyDelete
