I spotted this diamond-in-the-rough next to an apartment building dumpster in my Glover Park neighborhood of D.C. Its design and construction made it look like an antique, but it clearly needed some work to restore and improve it. I began by painstakingly stripping and sanding off the nasty black paint. To streamline and update the design, I used a coping saw to smooth out some of the curves, following up with a belt sander and hand sanding. I applied a medium/dark brown stain and three coats of Minwax water-based clear satin Polycrylic. To hide the strangely damaged top, where someone had deeply burned in a smiley face, I added a thin foam cushion, covered it with faux leather leftover from another project, and attached it with classic roundhead upholstery nails. The final product has a nice restored antique look and is more comfortable to sit on than hard wood.
