A couple of years ago I made this seat from an old bed end and head. At the time the whole family helped strip off the stain and then I polyurethane it. I was never that thrilled with it though as it was just boring pine and I felt it made it look like a park bench that anyone could make and not celebrate the upcycling and recycling ethos. Anyway, after being in the garage for about 8 weeks and slowly doing it bit by bit, here it is. Chalk paint and waxed.
The picture on the left is how it started life after my original recycle. The update now has it matching the headboard I recently redid.
To finish the post here is me having climbed without trouble for the first time in months and months. Very happy about that.
