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