Who: Hannah Watson
Where: Tupelo, Mississippi
The Project: Hannah snagged an old headboard and footboard from the thrift shop without a plan, knowing only that she loved the spindled look and the $20 price tag. "I try to be outside as much as possible," she says. It's only natural, then, that she transformed her find into a cheery garden bench.
The Feat: Hannah used dowel joinery to connect the footboard sides to the headboard back and 14s for the seat. To get a comfortable height, she threaded stock table legs onto the legs of the bed parts.
