What a fantastic idea! It looks gorgeous! That's seriously one of the nicest looking benches I've seen!

That looks great.

Adding to the other questions: what kind of wood did you use and what stain/finish?

Weezie, it only took about an hour to put together.
all the bits were there already, so it just needed a few screws and a bit of sawing.
if i had a blue print it wouldnt have been so quick to make [critic] [Big Grin]
Melissa, its made of pine, so it wont last too long outside.
and it was varnished twice with some old stuff leftover in the shed.
Total cost = £0.00p [Wink]
thanks for all the comments.

Looks awesome!!! I can see that just covered in pots of colorful blooms rather than a sitting area.

Very creative...turned into a beautiful piece of patio furniture. Add a nice, comfy cushion and you have a good spot for a little nap. [Wink]

Mark, just curious, did you add a coat or two of water sealer after you varnished?

no water sealer, that would cost money [Big Grin]

That is beautiful! What a creative eye to come up with that. Much better then taking it to the dump!
