Another Picture of the Bench
I put in a new support beam across the middle of the bench and then added this new bottom. The previous bottom of the bench was canvas. It doesn't look like much here, because this is just a piece of 3/4" plywood. I also sanded this down once I attached it. Once I get the wood (Shane advised me to get some good oak, in the same thickness as the bottom) for the seat, I can start staining the whole thing. I've already got the hinges. I'm thinking about picking up a little magnetic closure for it.
It will be a few days before I get a chance to work on this again, but my intention (with lots of advice and help from my husband) to turn he bench into a shallow little cabinet under the cushion.
