We have nine garden beds in our yard. One of our goals this summer was to put a structural piece in each garden. 

Two of the gardens already had pieces that we got last year. You can view these garden ideas on my website by visiting the simple DIY bench tutorial that we did for our new garden, and the pergola swing I got for my birthday/Mother's Day. 

Our large, oak garden became our focus this summer. I thought it would be fun to try a headboard bench, and I really like the results. We now enjoy a simple, rustic bench that literally took 60 minutes to cut, build and paint.  

You can make this garden bench, too. To build it, you'll need a twin-size headboard — I bought mine from Salvation Army for half off the original price of $11.25. Your materials list also includes two 2-by-4s and two 1-by-6 boards. We had all the wood on hand so we didn't have to buy anything. You can use scrap pieces if you plan to paint your rustic headboard bench as we did.

This is an excellent idea! But, this cr*p from janemeure is not. This isn't the place for spam ads.
