This was a piece that I came up with on my own, I recycled an old dresser and an old baby bed. The seat and arm rests are just pine 2×10’s that I played with, with a grinder and sanders. Please let me know the what you think, the good, bad, and ugly! Thanks LJ friends!

I’m usually not a fan of most “up cycled” projects, but this is great work. Everything looks like its custom made and gist well together.

Thanks Marcus, this was my first up cycled project and I enjoyed doing something a little different.

“Gist” was supposed to be “fits”...damn auto correct.

You did a really nice job on it. I like the contrast between the painted wood and finished wood. It’s really a nice design over all.

Awesome job with the upcycle. The seat bench really stands out-what did you use for finish on it?

Thanks for sharing.

Nice work. I really like the contrast between the paint and the stain. Did you use the poly straight or thin it with mineral spirits? The gloss really pops. Keep up the good work!

Have your say...
