Canopy bed turned into a bench

This is a customer supplied antique canopy bed that has been in family a very long time. She did not want to get rid of it but also did not have use for it in the current form.

Above is a picture that she sent us to see if we could make a bench from this bed. The issues that she needed addressed was , it was too tall (8 ft tall at the post), too wide over 4 1/2 ft wide, wanted different color. The room she envisioned it going into was the guest room and it had no closet, so she wanted some rails around the top for guest to hang clothing. We ended up cutting it down to 3 ft wide and just under 6 ft tall with antique white and a dark stain. 

(yes the paint scheme was based on the horse "Frankie" in the background)
