French Farmhouse Bench

A pal became promoting her antique head and foot board and I snapped them up. In spite of the broken trim and wavy veneer I estimated an elegant bench. $60 for the head and footboard was a awesome deal and a couple of projects

The first task was to make a field. Measuring the width and depth of the bench seat I used 1x four’s to make a easy container.

I connected the field to the headboard the use of 2.Five” timber finishing screws. The next task was to connect legs. Looking thru my series…Yes, if I see legs I purchase them, I pulled out French Provençal ones.

I introduced one foot pieces of 2×4 to the top of each leg with screws. This provided greater strength to the legs. I then delivered the legs to the front corners of the container.

With the legs on I then introduced 1×4 pine boards for the seat. I stained the seat, body and legs in MinWax Provincial stain. I sanded the wavy veneer and filled all cracks with wooden filler. I cut the ornamental side rail and added it to the the front of the field.

After sanding the wood filler, I painted the bench in Benjamin Moore’s Gauntlet Grey. Made a cushion from 3” foam with a plywood base. The remaining step changed into covering the cushion in Frontgates’s herringbone fabric.

The headboard turned out so nicely, I decided to make one out of the footboard. Two beautiful French Farmhouse benches have now been happily placed in new houses.
