One plus One equals One

 Bonjour from Campagne Maison

ONE rusty wrought iron bench/wine rack  +

ONE busted up wooden skid =

ONE new bench (or possible coffee table)

This was a "FREE is BETTER" REpurpose, REfinish, REcycle project. The bench was given to me by my sister and the skid was a roofers discard. I cut the boards at random widths and sealed them with Minwax Wood Finish Special Walnut # 224. I am trying to decide if I want to use it for seating on the deck or take it one step further by sealing off the oxidation on the wrought iron and using it inside as a coffee table. Only time will tell!

I am linking this post up with:

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today.  We love having company!

Au revoir,

Oh, this is just great! I love how you used two "has been" items and made them one great feature item. Love it!

Jacque, this is charming. Repurposed adds a wonderful dimension. I think either bench or table are terrific ideas. You are very clever. I never would have thought of adding the wood. Great job on the corner cabinet as well! ~ Sarah
