New Life for an Old Bench

I just have to show off what The Toolman did for his Saturday project.  This bench was left behind by the previous owners of my parents home.  They asked if my husband could use his pick-up to haul it off to the dump, but he had other plans.


Before
 Here it is after a day with a wire brush drill bit, a can of spray paint, and some new wood.


After
 True, this was not a freebie (check out Nice, New?...Not Necessarily  for those scores) --we had to buy the wood and bolts.  Still the sense of accomplishment is priceless.

So I am dying to know, did you get to keep it, or did you return it to the parents for a wonderful surprise????

Yes, we did sneak it back on their porch as a housewarming present. Mom is thrilled.
