OLD BUS STOP BENCHES GET NEW LIFE

A couple of weeks ago we were in a small thrift/Salvage store looking for some projects and Sandi (The wife) Found some old 1940's or 30's bus stop concrete bench supports buried under some other things.. They were cracked and had about five thick layers of paint on 'em .......We bought 'em for a pretty good price and took em home

sandblasted all the layers of paint off...... got oak support beams cut and fitted some angles attached to the oak to keep 'em from moving around

and now instead of two old broken discarded seven foot bus stop benches................ we have two pretty unique and cute patio chairs.....

 

We like 'em .....!!
