Funky bench made from an old door!

Funky bench made from an old door!

I love making benches from old paneled doors. I know it's nothing new, but I still like them! This one I cut into a funky shape and added some upholstery tacks for fun. I left this one its original white. I have it in the entryway of our business, but works great on the deck too!

Pattern or design used: My own design

cirlam writes: This is a project that I have been wanting to start. I am asking for tools for Christmas to start on some of these projects & would like to know what kind of saw do you use for these? I don't have any big tools, & need to know the major ones I will need to tackle these projects so I can ask for them. Thanks in advance! Posted: 1:18 pm on December 7th

Great followup to your card file ottoman!
