Old Bench is broken. Idea for Trash to Treasure
I have a wooden "Colonial" style bench. (it has the spindle legs and back) One of the stretchers across the bottom...the one that keeps the legs from spreading and making the bench collapse...is broken. The bench is on one of my porches and while it is safe from anyone ever actually sitting on it. I want to put an antique metal table and chairs out there so I can actually enjoy it. Do I sit the bench out and hope someone takes it? Do I beg someone with a truck to take it to the dump?
Or...can anyone give me an idea of how to repurpose it.
I hope you know what kind of bench I mean. I feel like it was in the entry hall of every colonial home since 1962 :)
I can hack it up with no guilt at all! I got it for free 10 or 12 years ago.
