This is a bench I built for my daughter to store her horse tack and boots. It is 100% repurposed wood (mostly Pallet wood) some corrugated roof metal and the center piece is a old Ford tailgate ( my daughter is a big Ford fan) I used the vinegar and steel wool trick to naturally oxidize the wood while layering and sanding paint to give it that fresh off the farm patina.
A few details are; a custom boot jack, in the center, that has magnets imbedded in them so it holds it's self up when not in use. Plus, I did a hand burned quote. The bench seats open up to reveal a large storage area for boots, tack and other horse items. I also created a pallet table to match.
