DIY Headboard Footboard/ Bench

We had this headboard and footboard already it was a queen size.

I wanted to make a swing out of it using as much of the materials as possible including the support boards.

Jack said it would be too heavy for that so we ended up doing a bench instead.

I wanted to leave the headboard as tall as we could for a statement piece.

I love the way this turned out.

This can be done with any headboard and footboard.

Anything we can recycle, repurpose and DIY I love.

DIY Windspinner

My husband came up with this idea of using old portable fan blades and making it into a wind spinner.

He spaced the blades a little different so you can see the green and yellow at the same time. This is made using two fan blades.

He had to buy some bearings, metal dowel, locking collars and a T everything else we had already.

Next, he will be making some single ones because we have two more blades but they are different so they will not work together.

Use your imagination to recycle & come up with something really unique. DIY is a way to be creative & challenge yourself into designing.
