For now I am going to show you how I made a bench out of an old patio table with no glass. It was just a black, metal frame to start with and we made a stable seat out of wood for it. I then took material and some foam and made a cushion by stapling the fabric into the wood seat. After it was complete I was happy but not satisfied and I thought that it needed something a little more. So I took the stencils out and acrylic paint and added "welcome". I was pleased with the addition and think that it would look great in an entry way or maybe even a mud room.
I hope you all have a great weekend!! I know that I am really looking forward to mine. ~ Jessica
Here is a picture of just the black, metal frame.
This is the wood that my husband helped me measure and cut to fit accordingly.
This is the finished product, I thought it was a great way to re-use a table without going through the hassle of trying to find a piece of glass for it. I think I like it more as a bench anyhow. :)
