Previously I posted about these redwood benches that I was going to refinish and use for extra seating on my deck. I hadn't done the job and in this case, my procrastinating paid off. Because an item that I thought I had missed out on turned out to be available. I'm so excited about this piece and am thinking about how I will fix it up.
I thought this had been sold, but I noticed the ad was still up on Craigslist. I contacted the buyer, he hadn't sold it and forgot to email me. It was too big to fit in my minivan, so my husband got a truck from work and now it's mine!
Option 1 - cover with new fabric
Option 2 - remove cover/foam cushioning and expose plywood underneath and use a colored stain on it,something like a kiwi green, if there is such a thing. This is dependent on the shape of the plywood and how well it is fitted in the frame.
Option 3 - Have wood inserts made to fit.
