Before & After: From Fence Posts To Foxy and Fabulous

The Brick House

I've never hated someone for having left over fence posts before. Well not hate-hate more like that "super jealous fake hate thing." So if you upgraded your fence and had a few posts left over, would you think to make the most amazing (and simple) diy bench in the world? Morgan Satterfield did!

Over at The Brick House they recently spent a few hundred dollars and a weekend repairing their old beaten down fence. As a result there were a few old posts left over from the project. Some of us would have put them on Craigslist, others would have stashed them for a project and a few might have just tossed them — they're old fence posts right?

Instead, Morgan decided that they would work perfectly with some Eames LTR bases they had salvaged from another piece of furniture. Braces were added to hold all the pieces together and just like that, they have the most amazing diy bench in the history of diy benches. This one gets extra marks for being relatively simple and having a high style impact on the bedroom it was destined for.

Doesn't it look ridiculously elegant? You can see the full process over at The Brick House, but we warn you, you'll hate them too once you start looking at it, but remember, fake hate is love on the internet! Go be jealous!
