Once upon a time back in 2000 I went to a thrift store and I could not pass up a dresser with 2 drawers and the mirror missing nor was I able to pass up a twin headboard. I went to my husbands office to show him what I had bought and he thought I was crazy! He asked me what are you going to do with these, I told him I do not know NOW but it will come to me. Well a few mornings later in the wee hours of the morning 4am to be exact it came to me! Make a BENCH!! So I did, my husband helped me with cutting down the dresser to bench height as well as the headboard to match the width of the dresser, then we got to work putting it together. It is very obvious the headboard is the back rest, the dresser is the bum rest. My husband asked me what are you going to do with the things that held the mirror up on the dresser ( I hope you can picture it) I told him lets make those the arm rests and they all lived happily ever after!! This has traveled with us to several homes and I have enjoyed it throughout the years. I think it is ready for a makeover but I just don't know what color to paint it.
