Re-purposed Vintage Door To A Front Porch Bench

3 Hours
A special gift for my brother for his birthday...a bench made out of a vintage door for his front porch. Plus a personalized pillow for the his homestead.
We wanted to surprise my brother for his birthday. It was a BIG hit!
Here's what we started with.
Part of the process. The plans were in my head and my husband was building it as I explained it. Is anyone else as crazy as we are?
Cutting the door down to size for the back of the bench.
Painted it white and kept it rustic
Personalized a pillow by painting "Herbert Homestead" in the center.
Once we surprised him with his gift, the party moved over to our house.
A Mustache Themed Party. So fun!
My dad was loving it!
The birthday boy with our parents at the table patiently waiting for us to serve up the spaghetti. I made them all pose for the photos before we dug in and got messy. Haha! It was a GREAT day! Lots more photos on the blog. Would love to have you stop by for a visit!
