A sunny day upcycling project

This weekend saw an unexpected amount of sunshine…. so it was decided that we would embark on a restoration project that has been looming over us for some time.

Unsold and unloved we happened to spot these benches in the car park of an auction house earlier this summer and thought we might be able to give them a loving home (and a new lease of life).  Making an offer there and then we were thrilled to be able take them home with us.

Armed with a stiff brush, a bowl of warm soapy water, some sandpaper, teak oil and some elbow grease we set to.

& even had some (un)helpful assistance from the Sausage.

Here is the finished piece.

All we have to do now is find somewhere for them to live!
