Did you have a wrecking ball drop on the bench or just too many people at a party sitting on it? It looks like it was not properly supported or anchored to the wall. There are fancy ways to dress up the front of the bench like putting in wainscoting details, beaded board, and cutouts so you have a bit of shelf or storage space accessible from front openings or hinging the seat tops. You can add higher if you want additional cocktail table/end table space or divide the long run. Just make sure the bottom is framed out to support the weight and allow access to the pipe junctions and valves below. Good luck.

The wrecking ball, 3 guesses?

(To my defense, the pressed wood was totally rotten!)

Thanks for your comments. You don't have any photos perhaps?

We thought of building a face brick "cage", cover it with nice wood and perhaps some pillows?
