Big Bertha Bench


I'm so happy to finally share this bench project with you. It has been completed for a few weeks but I'm just finding the time to share.




I was calling her Big Bertha because this is one heavy bench that is 5 feet long.




She was constructed from a little of this and a little of that.

The bottom bench came from a Chili's restaurant that was remodeled. It only had the front legs so we added the back ones. Mike added the metal scroll arms and the metal frame for the back.






I added multi-colored scrap wood pieces for the seat.




The back is the same piece of wood that I used for my Junk Holiday Mantel.with the car parts removed.

But we did add a handle just to give it some detail.




A few pieces of reclaimed fence give the trim a finished look.




Even though we love the bench it did make the trip to our show last weekend. She was a good spot to display a few frames and things for the weekend.



And she SOLD!! Thank goodness we only had to move her once and she now has a new home.

Enjoy your new place on the beach side of Florida, Big Bertha.



Thanks for stopping by,
