Ikea full bedframe into garden bench
Materials: Ikea full bed frame, screws, a little wood glue, circular saw and a drill
Description: I found this bedframe on the street (complete except for hardware). I can’t find the name of it on Ikea’s website so I think it’s a discontinued model. I cut the footboard down, attached the pieces as sides and completed the frame with a cut down side rail.
Then I cut and laid down six pieces of bed slats as a base (parallel to sides) and attached the remaining bed slats on top to form the seat. I held it together with screws, brackets and a little glue. I plan to paint it so that it can be outside year round.
