Zachary's Craigslist bench was showing its age. Instead of simply recovering it, he went woven—and now it's fit for a (very well appointed!) patio:

From Zachary:

I bought this piece on Craigslist for 45 bucks. I ripped off all the old naugahyde upholstery and found sub-grade wood underneath. I filled all the upholstery holes with wood filler and painted that black. I re-stapled on black polypropylene webbing and refinished the base of the chair and I love this bench/loveseat now! Because I have 4 coats of poly on the wood, I think I'm going to use this chair outdoors on my patio!

Thank you Zachary!
