Who would have thought that 4" x 4" rotten fence posts could shape up and look so flippin' great? This repurposed bench project on ApartmentTherapy instantly snagged my attention. And to think I almost called a guy to haul away our old fence posts that are heaped on the wood pile. This project was done by the bloggers over at The Brick House. They used the metal bases that came off their old Eames Surfboard Table but I'm sure I can find a unique base with a day or two of vintage scouting.
