Bench Reclaimed Wood

I used the Ana White plans from the Large Porch X Back Bench. However, I downsized it to 2X2 instead of 2x4's for a lighter project. I used the wood I salvaged when I replaced my fence. It was about 15 yrs old. I cut off the rotten parts and used the good parts. It was pressure treated and still in very good condition. I cut down the 4x4's to 2x2"s via my table saw as well as the framing of the 2x4's. I used leftover treated 2x2's from a pergola I recently completed for the X back. I used leftover fence planks for the seat.
The only cost I incurred was 3" screws and wood glue.
I had a gallon of the paint in my garage that I had purchased at Walmart a few months back for another project for $7.
