I've Been Waiting All Winter to Make This Bench

Pin It


Last year was a fairly busy year, plus I was injured, these two things kept me from creating some of the projects I have waiting for me. 
I've had this dresser for a few years and have moved it a couple of times. I've had this project in mind for some time now. I'll admit I saw this idea online, and now that I've finished this one I look forward to making another.

It started with this dresser.


I knocked apart what I no longer needed,


and added support for the seat, and the back and added some trim.


After sanding and paint (Annie Sloan, Provence).


I just went outside to go over to my shop and take a picture of the final product and this little guy was standing in the driveway looking at me.


 Then on to varnish, stain (Minwax, Ebony), varnish. I cut the top down to size to use for the seat, added a nice foam seat cushion, and here it is! Please excuse the background, I don't have the space or the muscles for nice staging.




So much fun!
