I don’t have the before picture of this. But I’ll describe this little scenario. My friend called me and said “I just saw a bench sticking out of the garbage can down the street from me, you should go check it out”. If you’ve been junking for awhile, you sort of know this feeling. Junkers get the reputation that we’ll take anything! I have had people drop off things at my house when I’m not home! (you know who you are) This is a very simple bench, but the before was downright UGLY. It had been shabbied up, and it had a cushion and fabric on it that I was almost afraid to touch! When I removed the cushion, I saw that the board underneath was in really good shape. That is when I made the decision not to paint the seat. I stained it with some old stain I had, and then put a couple of coats of poly on it.I had some oops green (exterior) so that’s what I went with. Painting details is not in my skillset, so I cheated a little here and used a rubon transfer (Tatouage). I only put the decal on one side. That way someone could place it however they wanted it. Either with the decal showing . . .
