Rustic Wedding Bench



Create a memorable wedding gift with the Rustic Wedding Bench project. This DIY bench was made from April's daughter's headboard from when she was six years old. Transforming the headboard into a new bench for her first home makes for a great story and a memorable piece of furniture. Add the wedding date and other personal touches to this project and you will love the way this project turns out.
