DB has been very busy painting the treadle sewing machine base with black hammerite:
The bench is in its first trial of being a single chair:
We have bought new bolts to attach the wood but will leave them shiny for now as a form of decoration.
Final stages are underway!
That all looks fantastic.ReplyDelete
It will be lovely! My husband made three benches in various sizes using the metal from old ones. He used new wood, though. It's been about ten years and they still look fabulous!ReplyDelete
Most of the old wood was still usable.Delete
What a wonderful idea xxReplyDelete
Can but try!Delete
Looking forward to the next installment!!Hubby is going a brilliant job.ReplyDelete
He's a good 'lad'.Delete
Looking very nice.ReplyDelete
What a good idea to have it as a chair. We have bench ends that were waiting to be turned back into a bench, but I think a chair would be much more useful ... and easier to move around too.ReplyDelete
It is still heavy as I found out when moving it!Delete
