20 year old bench looks like new

We bought this cast iron bench when we first moved into our home 20+ years ago. I’ve thought about throwing it out for years, mostly because I was afraid someone would sit on it and fall through, but due to quarantine, Randy finally found some time to replace the wood. Less than $30 and it looks like new.
We just replaced the wood and painted the ironwork.
The ones they make today aren’t nearly as well made as this.
It weighs at least 70-100lbs! 

This shows how much it was worn even back when the kids were little. 

It had definitely seen better days 
I’m so glad I never got rid of it. I love trash to treasure items!
