Project Church Pew!

I have been looking for a church pew for quite a while but could not find one that was small enough to fit in the specific space in my home. In addition, they can be pricey so I was trying to figure out how I could do it myself. While at a thrift store recently I found a bench. Just a plain bench with no back! I went ahead and bought it because it was only seven dollars and figured I could do something with it but at the moment not realizing it could turn into project church pew. Once I got home, I began trying to figure out how I could make this plane bench look different and out of the corner of my eye I saw a set of bifold doors that that I purchased a few months back but had not done anything with them it was at that moment that I realized I could create my own church pew. Now, the doors were too long and I could not figure out how I could cut them down to size to make them fit on the back of the bench without it looking awkward. Then it dawned on me that I could cut It down to size and then piece back the ends! So I got to cutting and putting the bifold door back together with wood glue and filler. I added a piece of plywood first before I added on the bifold doors to give it a little bit more support. Then I got to sanding and painting! Finally, I added a corbel at each end that I hand made from scrap wood. And Bam, my version of a church pew!
