A New Garden Bench

A couple of months ago, 'im outdoors bought home some tatty bits of metal, found in a skip and no longer wanted.  It took me a moment to realise what they were - the metal ends to a park bench.  All the wood had rotted away but the metal bits were OK, just needed a coat of paint.

So I painted them a lovely dark green, and when 'im outdoors had cut and sanded all the wood I vanished it.  Then he put it all together.  I am so chuffed with it.  Sat against the side of the house it is in shade all morning and again in the evening so perfect for sitting out in this hot weather.  And Milo likes to lay under it when we're sitting on it - the family all together.  This is up-cycling at its best.
