Are you planning to throw away some old broken chairs? Have you ever thought about recycling them? We must support the cause of environmentalists to stop the continuing decline of our ecological system. Broken chairs, just like other throwaways lying in our dilapidated sheds, are still useful.
If you’re contemplating about purchasing some new furniture for your garden, then think again. By using the good parts of broken chairs, you can make a French styled bench you can be proud of. You can build a box that is rectangular in shape from pieces of wood taken from a junk furniture kept in the cellar or somewhere else.
Using two backs of a chair, you can attach all of them together with screws. Then, if you have a ½” leftover plywood you can cut, refine and use it as the bench top. You might like to paint it also, if you don’t want to have a natural look to it.
Now, you’re almost done. If you have some thin old mattress, you can use this to cover the bench top. You may also opt to use a sturdy cloth as cover. While there are other ways of making a French styled bench, always consider available resources you have at home. This will prevent you from spending much. Try to do some research online because there are valuable guides that you can follow easily.
