A friend found two chair backs on the curb and brought them to me. After shifting them around in the garage for weeks, I finally decided what to do with them!
I had some inspiration from the nice ladies on the hgtv t2t message boards, KYlady, and SharonS







thanks for looking!

that is so cute.  I can totally envision doing this myeslf and adding a "lid" that lifts up for tea-party-things storage in the seat.  Really nice.

There are legs on each side in the back, plus the middle ones in the back.  So, it have 5 legs.

All the parts of this bench were curbside finds!

thanks for all the kind words from everyone!
