This sweet garden bench was made by a garden friend. Using old headboards as the base, each bench is unique and perfect in the garden.
A perfect addition to Rabbit Run Cottage, I added a couple of vintage ticking feather pillows to take a little rest from garden chores.

What a great idea to repurpose headboards in this way. Does your friend sell these? If so, where? The pillows are the perfect inviting touch.
Yes, each bench is quite clever! He does sell them and I will email you his info, local Wasecan!
So pretty…Love the pillows…you can sort of arrange them the way you want. Very sweet 🙂
Just love the old ticking feather pillows, bought 5 at an auction last Fall, they were carefully stored in bags, and labeled by a sweet older lady as to which bed they went to. A local church in town has a fundraiser a few times a year for feather pillow cleaning–I did have them cleaned!
Lovely bench and of course I like that it was a repurposing project.
Yes, a great reuse of discarded bed frames–!
You have thought of so many lovely details in your garden. What an inviting bench!
Thank you, it’s such a pleasure to share it with you! 🙂
Not sure I’d be able to get up if I ever sat down 😉
🙂 I cleaned up inside Rabbit Run Cottage the other night (Lucy was having a sleepover in the loft), I climbed up to fluff the pillows, and check for any spiders (that can send girls running to the house screaming!) I laid down and actually dozed off!! 🙂
