H&H style expert Ryan Louis demonstrates how to make a simple rustic bench from a reclaimed wood beam. Watch him sand and seal the distressed wood to bring out its gorgeous tones, then finish it off with antique-style cast iron feet. This project is an easy and affordable way to introduce an organic, historical touch in an entryway or dining room.
