I have lots of leftover wood from all my projects. I never throw anything away that I could eventually use. And I’m always trying to think of something to build using just scraps of wood. So when I saw this cute bench over at “miscellanyofme” I knew I could build it with what I already had, but on a smaller scale. I won’t go over the particulars of how I built it, she has a tutorial on her site. I did however make a few changes from her version (besides the obvious size difference).
Here it is finished and stained. I kind of liked how it looked stained, but it too closely resembled a high school wood-shop project. So I went ahead and painted it white. And distressed it.
And here it is trying to pretend it’s in a garden…
I’ll get a picture of one of the girls on it so you can visualize the scale better. For now they are napping, so I mustn’t wake the beasts.
