Garden bench restoration

Painting a garden bench

This type of garden bench was very popular in the 1970's. This one is owned by a regular customer of ours and she wanted it restored.

The metal and bolts were quite badly rusted so the only option was to fully dismantle the bench, clean and paint all the parts and then rebuild it with new bolts. We also made three new reinforcement plates from steel flat bar to improve the strength of the seat area of the bench. These benches were notoriously hard to paint in one piece with their white and black colour scheme.

The bench turned out well and the customer was happy with the outcome. Sometimes it is nice to preserve old or unusual items especially when they are of sentimental value.
