I was somewhat surprised by my hubby dragging this bench home from "The Junkyard from Hell". It's only a few miles from my house and quite a scary place. I've been there but I usually send "my representative" to look for interesting junk. We've had some good finds but this bench was huge, 9 feet 4 inches of Huge.
We measured in my front room but it was just too big so my husband said he would cut it down to size. He took off one end and sawed two feet off it and then moved the middle leg back to the middle. Then he painted it gray and then sponge painted (only he did it with a plastic bag) it a lighter gray. Then I made some pillows for it and in it finally came.
It's a very comfortable bench too. We love to restore junk!
