Here is the foot board just sitting on the coffee table.
I started by cutting the legs off the foot board.
I added some arms that came from a chair I tore apart to salvage some pieces. The spindles connected to the arms are from a different chair.
Here is a close up of the arm and spindle. The bench back was attached by using the kreg jig.
Here is the bench painted and with one coat of the artisian outdoor clear coat. She decided she didn't like the posts so...
I cut them off. Here is the completed project. I'm sure it will look fabulous on her porch!
