This is our most recent recycled furniture project! Since Spring has finally arrived in Ottawa, we wanted to make some outdoor furniture for our BBQ area. Nothing had come to mind until my husband found a solid wood futon frame outside ready for garbage day, so we decided to give it a try! Futon frame are perfect for building furniture. All parts are solid wood, small and with standard dimensions, so its easy to module them for the desing. After painting the slats with a graphite pattern using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, we applied an exterior grade sealer to protect them from wearing! Result: BBQ mode ON! Friends can attest that!
