Old Weight Bench Gets a Second (Or Third?) Life

Years ago, Mary Beth used this bench for weight lifting.  She explains over at Cupcakes and Crinoline that after it wasn’t being used for that anymore, she’d turned it into a bench for her sun porch.  Leaving it there year round, the bench had become worn and rusted.

Recently, when Mary Beth rearranged the sun porch, she decided it was time to do something else with the bench.  Going with the idea that it could become a garden bench, she set about refreshing it and making sure it would withstand the weather.  She painted the metal base with Rustoleum’s “Island Splash” and reupholstered with a pretty outdoor grade fabric.  Mary Beth reports that it’s holding up well outside, and she loves having the extra seating out there.
