Before and after: a church bench transformed into a headboard

In the blog Faith Buss They have done a DIY job that I loved. What you see on these lines is a church pew typical of those in so many parishes throughout the world but with no space to kneel behind. Wow, any bank picked up from a parish where they had decided to get rid of it.

Neither short nor lazy, they took the bank and they saw the central part to make it coincide with the measures of the bed and to be able to couple it as headboard, taking care that it will be symmetrical on both sides. In addition, they put some wheels under it to facilitate moving it both to clean and for any eventuality, since usually these banks are very heavy.

In this way, they got not only a headboard if not two bedside tables on the sides where to leave books and other things that need to be at hand during the night. I loved this DIY work, transforming the church bench into something totally different and getting a totally different air.

Attention to the work of rebarnizado that was realized and the very original election of the wheels, giving the room a vintage air reinforced by the bedside lamps, some flexes repescados probably from a market. I also want to highlight the window doors on the bed, they seem a lovely detail. Do you like change? Would you have given the banks another use?

The best tricks of Marie Kondo (for those who know they cannot carry out the whole method)

The book, if you manage to overcome a first part in the Marie Kondo tells you about his childhood (-and, in which you already confirm that it was very normal, it was not-), he ends up repeating many times, a little in the style of Allen Kar and Your book to quit smoking, the key to your method: Sort after throwing away what does not make you happy or no longer use.

Friday's Decorative Riddle: Rainbow

This Friday we propose a very colorful decorative riddle game. As every Friday we have chosen an object for the home that at first sight does not make its function clear, so that you try to guess what it is or what it is for. Surely you will not need many clues, but I will tell you that it is something very practical, although it does not seem so and that in another form and another color you all have something with the same function at home.
