If you have ever hung out in a garage before, you know that seating is usually limited to old wheels, plastic crates, and cold concrete. While this concept may seem crazy to some, the reasoning for this is quite valid. Floor space in garages is extremely valuable, and it should not be wasted with non-tools, parts, or vehicles.
GREAT NEWS THOUGH! There is a solution that is logical, comfortable, and down right decorative! I found this amazing idea posted by “Outcast99” on Killbillet.com and was instantly filled with jealousy. You basically grab an old truck bed from your back yard, a nearby field, a scrap yard, or the woods, and start cutting. Once the bed is commandeered, you begin the project by cutting the sides and floor out of the bed. You then weld the front to the back with only a couple inches of space between the front of the bed and the tailgate. Next up, you add a metal base made from the scrap steel you have under your workbench. Before long, you have sweet folding seating for up to 2 adults or possibly 3 lovely ladies! When you need the extra space, you simply kick your friends out and fold the tailgate up. How cool is that? Jealous yet?
