New Bun Feet

8:16:00 AM

This is going to be a 2 part project... at least....

First, I found these awesome, very old, oak bed parts on the side of the road.... 



I swear...I don't make this up, people throw out great stuff!... my husband was with me, 
he didn't want to stop but I won.

Very, very, old and awesome but all I really want is the parts...

especially these spindle tops...

(and rest assured those headboard and footboard pieces will be showing up as awesome signs one of these days...)


I have this big project I want to do....It has to do with painting kitchen cabinets.

Not all of them mind you, in my kitchen that is way too big of a job for me.

I have this desk area that I want to make look like a built-in hutch.

And here is where the bed comes in...

I chopped off the top of the bed spindles and made bun feet.


You can see that my cabinets are in desperate need of paint and now the bun feet are too!


I also attached corbels to each side of the desk top...

All this before I actually paint the cabinets...


And this is where I'm leaving you...

*update* The hutch was painted French Linen and the corbels and bun feet are perfect! See it here.

Also see the Headboard Message Center I made with another piece of this awesome find!

  1. Tee hee you did it! Adding bling to furniture is not adding new furniture in the house.
    I was hoping you saw sign material there!!!
    Have fun.

  8. Ooooh, you tease! : ) Great idea to use the spindles for bun feet, Susan. I was thinking the headboard and footboard would make great signs. So you've got at least two projects out of these bed parts. I know you will come up with more though!

  9. Great idea! I have 2 bed sets like that sitting in my spare room waiting.....for me to do something with them but I'm actually going to use mine for beds! LOL! I do need some bun feet though but I'll probably buy some as I have 2 bookcases and a dresser I want to put them beneath. I can't wait to see the finished product. It already looks great!
    P.S. I did not get mine for free but they were pretty darn cheap at a church sale!

  10. Susan, that is an antique rope bed, but I haven't a clue as to its value.

  11. Those make great feet for your cabinets. We are in the middle of remodeling our kitchen. I would like to have feet on our kitchen sink cabinet and also on the cabinets that make up our buffet area.
    The head and foot board will be great pieces to make signs out of.
    What a great find!!
