Bring Old Things Back to a New Life

Being a builder I always end up with stuff from a remodel because it dates the home or it's broken and needs to be replaced. I'm always looking for stuff I can use in a different way. I like Bringing Old Things Back to New Life and with a new purpose if possible.
Here is an example of one I just finished doing for some Old Door Handles.
A new Bench has been in the works this week. It's to the painting stage and being primed with Gray paint first. I have decided to make this with a distressed finish. I do like the look of distressed as it give an Old look to it if done right. I have done a few of them but never with a primed base first. I'm hoping with the gray primer under everthing that it will give it a light blue hue under it all.
Here are some before pictures.
The after pictures should be here at the end of this coming week if every thing goes well with my regular work.
