A while back I blogged about a project fail. It started with these two chairs.
I took the chairs apart and made a box and added planks. You can see that stuff in the post 2 chairs + 1 bench = failure.
I picked up a few more 1×4’s and cut them with my jigsaw. I clamped each board to the back of the bench and drew a line to match the curve.
I used my nail gun to attach the back, and then drilled pilot holes and screwed them in place.
I think I love the curve of her back.
It’s been warm, so I was able to use my Homeright Finish Max to spray a base coat of turquoise over the existing black.
After the turquoise dried, I used some black paint watered down to do a dark “glaze” over the turquoise.
Calling this little lady done.
It took extra work, but at least I like it now. Do you?
Thanks so much for all the great comments on the original post. It had never occurred to me that this could be a bench for plants. I wonder what her new owner will do with her. She’s currently residing in my newly revamped booth.
