This bench was thrown together when I realized my poor porch was bare at Christmas. I used a pallet and since it was done in a hurry the paint job is really lacking. I grabbed a log from the woodpile and made the last name chips and just decorated it with stuff around the house including some pine from a tree. All together I had about five bucks in it. I plan to sand and repaint it.

Nice bench, Lisa. The imperfect paint job gives it a rustic feel. The letter discs add to this effect. Thanks for sharing.

Nice bench, but I wouldn’t paint it any better…in fact rough it up a bit more…looks really rustic if that is the look you are after that is.

I have to agree, a few whacks with a chain and a hammer then let it weather for a while. Let the curtain climbers at it and it will look well used in short order. That is what makes it unique.

Yeah I see what you’re saying. I just thought it needed to go more finished or more rustic one. Maybe I will just take the sander to it.
