Broken Bench Pallet Art


My art projects started out with this old broken bench 
a friend dropped off at my house.

Thank you Patty for dropping off the bench... truthfully I would have loved to see it strapped to the roof of your little car!

Did you notice that this bench has no seat?
that is because I used the bench slats for my projects.

The bench was truthfully beyond repair so I unscrewed the 
slats then cut them into 18" lengths. I strapped 4 or 5 of the slats together for each project with 2 cross pieces on the back. 

I used a dry brush technique on each pallet to give them a weathered look.

On one I printed out words from my computer then traced them onto the pallet.

On the other pallet board I sketched out a seahorse...

The results are 2 beautiful pieces of pallet art from 
the slats of a bench that may have ended up in the land fill.

Stay tuned... I'm pulling apart the back of the bench next!

  1. Talk about repurposing at its best! I'm not surprise they sold that fast, great job!
