Then the project bombs.
I throw a pity party after I re-read DIY blogs and lament "Why?" "Why, oh why can't I DIY, dammit!"
So I'll throw my inspiration out there for you my friends. Come along for the ride in fantasy Linda-Land.
I stumbled upon this bench on J.Waddell Interiors blog.

Here is another angle of the bench in the foyer before the room is loaded.
I'm not in love with the white upholstered seat. It's a great concept for design. For staging, it would be better to have a wooden seat and add pillows.
OK folks, this is all I've got. This headboard is what started my old, rusty wheels turning,"Ohhhhh, I could make that headboard into a bench!" I took this picture for Craigslist many moons ago and then didn't post it. (ADD? Correct-o.)
(Disregard the funny feet on the posts. This headboard was used in a staged house and it needed a lift. Of course, the funny feet were hidden).
I am open for suggestions:
"bail", "you are cra-cra", "take it to a professional", "easy-peasy", "go to Home Depot and buy furniture legs and get a board cut for the seat", "get an old interesting piece of furniture and break it down for parts", "you DO have special saws, a workbench, tools, and a professional paint gun, right?"
Thanks for your input!
