One of the many delights of living by the sea is finding driftwood on the beach after a storm.
But we at ArtPix Towers like to go a bit further. Not just picking up bits of wood, but coming back with whole bits of furniture!
We found this amazing and slightly bashed bench down on Chesil Beach a couple of months ago.
After hauling it up the hill and getting it home, I set about cleaning it up and working out what to do with it.
As it was missing its legs on one side, I sawed it virtually in half. Then stripped away the bits falling off and repaired the other legs.
After much sanding down, I painted it a rather dashing red and white, and hey presto, a lovely new bench for the back yard!!
So keep an eye out for washed up bits of furniture after a storm!
