TEN simple salvaged chair and bench projects that are OUT-THERE!


     I've seen these at the Brimfield Fair in MA this year, and quite a few places online, and apparently they sell very well! LOVE 'em! So simple to make too, and this might make for a fun addition to the porch or deck of your tiny house or cabin, or even inside your home- adding a dash o' funk and creativity to the mix.

Also, if you missed it, THIS is going to be a heck of a good time! A Hands-On Tiny House Building Workshop near Wilmington, NC! Limited to 20 attendees, and LOADED with hosts, carpenters, guest speakers, and tiny house experts!!! Its filling up fast!!!

Above: A great BEAM bench- an old recycled timber beam, hollowed out on one end for a planter, and made into a long seat. VERY simple, but creative- from 

Loaded with character and lots of patina! from 

More simplicity, and that with a modern twist, above, from

  2. Hi, Deke. I have tried to contact you several times. I have a basement full of building materials, a garage and part of a barn full of STUFF to get rid of. Just recently lost my husband to cancer....getting rid of my house, and building a tiny house in my yard. These things will not be available long, and I would love to support your activities with all this free stuff...I know your wife will hate it all, but....

  3. This is very artistic and a low cost or even no cost project. Awesome...

  4. Thanks for sharing this quality information with us. I really enjoyed reading.
