When Mr FF took down the old rustic mantle piece above the wood burner to replace it with a minimal amount of marble he was all for cutting up the wood for the fire. I persuaded him that the L shaped pieces would make a decent bench for the front garden and finally that’s what he’s made.
He went to the builders yard to buy wood to make the legs, they kindly gave him three offcuts which he painted black, the paint was left over from another project, all he had to buy were the brackets that connect the seat to the legs. I did say I was not sure about seeing the brackets, I’m told it’s called structural honesty when the makings are visible.
Anna our neighbour was here on recently, she liked our recycling ethos and sat down on the bench for a while. As she said it’s nice to sit and greet people walking by, the bench faces onto the road, then added except there is never anyone walking by, we are a cul de sac. Never mind the view is nice.
