I was given two benches from my in-laws to use – my wife grew up with these in her dining room and has many memories attached to them. I had just finished my kitchen table (see previous project posts) and wanted something to match as a set. One of the legs needed a minor repair. Then I removed the tops and tried to give the bases a “rough” refinish to match the legs of the table using a grey weathered stain. The tops were just strip-sanded and given a poly finish. I must say I like benches in the kitchen MUCH better than single chairs. It makes a nice looking set too – like they were meant to be together.
