Two little benches needed some serious love. Lots of sanding, a little bit of white wash and the initial of each of my kid's first name combined with their birth year turned into a shoe storage bench that adorns our entry hall. Click here for the before picture.
The secret lies in the simplicity of the upcycling process to create this coffee table.
I found an old work bench discarded on the side of the road which after some good sanding down, the addition of two 4x4 and large casters turned into the star of our living room. I love the vintage industrial look of the wood and it's the perfect height for resting your feet (allowed every now and then) or a fun family picnic get together. Click here for a before picture.
