Large Coffee Table + Dressing Mirror = Bench!!
It's all how you look at things!
I found this large wood coffee table at a thrift store for $4.99 It looked like a dozen children used it as a coloring book and gum cemetery! I sanded it down, heavier in some areas, then used a dark stain, wiping off as I went along to give it this look.
I took the mirror apart and used the mirror frame for the back of the bench. I cut a piece of plywood to fit behind the frame. Attached and stained. I used the mirror supports for the arms of the bench.
To attach the frame to the table, I had a couple of old office chairs and used the back metal pieces that join the back rests to the seats. They were heavy duty and worked perfectly!
There was already a hole in the piece I used for the arm, so I attached them with bolts.
The people who purchased this had a thick padded cushion made and use it in their eat in Bakery!! Thanks for lookin' :)
