Try Benching It

We moved this bench made from an old marble hearth here. Now that it’s in place it could use an upgrade.

 The bottom of the bench made from hefty 4 by 4s and marble will remain in tact.  The back, however, is getting a Chinese Chippendale treatment.

Maybe it should be painted white or another color that blends with the other paint in the yard.

I’m really thinking of trying this.

What d’you think? Have you made any “improvements” lately?
