I Cannot Give This One Away!


I was to make another bench for someone and now that it is done, I cannot sell it. LOL. I am going on a week long trip so my excuse will be that I could not get to it (because I certainly cannot sell it now).
I found these 2 wrought iron pieces on clearance for less than $3 they look so cool that I just cannot part with this bench!
We also adapted the base design too and it came out GREAT! I love working with concrete and creating one of a kind pieces. No perfection here-just handmade garden art and working pieces for the garden.
This bench cost less than $20 to create and with a frame/mold that we tweak each time, there are no extra costs to create more for friends or to sell.
I have to make a couple benches soon and we have yet another idea to change up the look! Create and inspire! My hubby is really enjoying helping me create but a cement mixer is now on our "must have" list.
I hope I have inspired you to create.
Happy gardening and enjoy nature!

We tweaked the frame/mold as previously posted-put in a 2x4 exactly 7" between

After using the sander to vibrate air bubbles and smoothing the top, we carefully 'plopped' the wrought iron pieces. Just tap once to set in place. Not too much or concrete oozes up too much (did that LOL)

These are the pedestals/base for the bench. Isn't this just cool?!
