Old College Futon Side Arm Repurpose

When my daughter wanted to get rid of our old futon she used at college, I took it back. It was bent, and the back wouldn't stay up unless it was propped against the wall. I got an idea to use it in the garden. I painted the side pieces gray and added plates and cupids, and stood them up behind some weathered wood box planters.
