Upcycled Chairs

The wife and I purchased some old chairs from a thrift shop in hopes of refurbishing them at a later time. Which never came around... 3 years later I came up with an idea to make a bench from 2 of them. I had seen some ideas online but never liked any of them because, most of them didn't have any cushion for comfort. I wanted to make a bench with a seat and backrest that had some comfort to it. So, I took the chairs apart and started racking my brain on ways it would work. The design I came up with was simple enough in thought, but took some tinkering to get it just the way I wanted it. I have never upholstered anything before this project. That in and of itself was the biggest challenge. As it were, I think it came out somewhat decent looking and most of my family and friends like the way it turned out. I hope you enjoy it as well.
