I had an old bench with the heavy cast iron arms that was falling apart.
Instead of tossing it out like I was going to do, I decided to bring some life back to it.

Before and After pictures...New planks, red, white and blue wood stain, wood burned the edges of the star and line between colors, new carriage bolts and some repainting of the arms and braces.

It's great when somebody 'breathes life' back into something that's old instead of tossing it out and buying a 'new' one at Lowes.

Nice job Swat. I love fixin' stuff up. So much more fulfilling than buying somethin' new.

Thanks everyone!

I'm pretty pleased the way it turned out. I just couldn't see in tossing the old thing out.

I was going to put it back in the front yard, but I may have to chain it to the tree. :)
