I am a self -taught artist and I build furniture out of salvage. I have never entered a contest before, but think this'll be loads of fun!
The first picture is of two chairs that were all wonky and shaky. I cut them apart and used them for the ends of a bench. The back of the bench is made from parts of a decrapitated head board. This whole project (except for the 2X4 frame underneath) is from curbside salvage.
I hope you like it!
