Romantic Wrought Iron Vintage Bench

2 Oak gates + 1 wrought iron panel = A bench!

A pair of old oak gates with decorative carved detail inspired me to make a bench. After sanding and liming the gates, I secured them to a gorgeous wrought iron panel to make the back of the bench. I spray painted the panel to freshen it up.

Sections of wood held the whole bench together and provided the seat.
I made a piped ‘mattress’ and with a couple of matching cushions it has made a romantic garden seat.

Romantic and pretty - just right for a quiet corner
