Introduction: Bench Restoration

About: I have a youtube channel and a Etsy shop I sell the things i make i also do craft shows and stuff like that. i am documenting my journey to help people do it yourself so steal my ideas and make some money!!

I hate seeing things being thrown away when you can easily restore it. I found this gem on the side of trash cans on garbage day. I stopped and picked it up and started the journey.

Step 1: Tools and Material


new wood of your choice I choose oak for the strength and look.
New hardware. nuts and bolts

Step 2: Disassemble

Take it apart throw away the nuts and bolts. Hold on to the wood slats for reference. Some of the old bolts gave me some trouble but it was no problem for the hacksaw from

Step 3: Cut New Wood

Cut new wood for the slats I used Oak. i just took the measurements from the old wood and cut the oak to width

Step 4: Round Edges

I used my router table with a 3/8 round over bit then cut the wood down to size using the old wood as a guide.

Step 5: Clean the Rust Off

I used a wire brush to get the rust off the metal sides

Step 6: Paint

i used the Professional Furniture Paint Spray Gun Airbrush Sprayer Alloy Painting Atomizer Tool with 400ML Hopper to spray the white paint and also used it for the wood slats.

Step 7: Drill New Holes

I made it simple and used the old wood as a jig to drill all the holes

Step 8: Assemble and Enjoy

Hope you enjoyed the process as much as I did special thanks to Gearbest for the great tools.
