We found a few old dining chairs.
As I was driving I saw someone had put these out for trash, as usual. Probably because the seat cushions weren't in very good condition. They were a little wet and crusty looking. That ended up being a quick fix. All I had to do was remove a few screws on the underside and the cushions popped right off.
Then we had to decide what we wanted to with these chairs. We could either re-upholster the chairs and use them as additional chairs around the house, we could disassemble them and fabricate something for a whole other purpose, or figure something out.
We started thinking and as the gears began ticking we decided to make a sitting bench for our pond project.
We grabbed a couple 2x6 treated boards and slapped those suckers down and used a few screws to hold them in place. Then I used an 80 grit sand paper to sand down the edges creating a smooth surface for the seat.
Here is where I would like your opinion. I had the idea of possibly sanding this down, painting it, and giving it a primitive country look. Lenny would like to put a couple coats of polyurethane and maintain a natural look
So what are your thoughts?
Here is the quick glimpse I shared earlier as a natural look next to our pond.
