Front Porch Bench

Submitted by torgerjl on Tue, 11/01/2011 - 06:14

I recently found this plan and decided to build it for my front porch. I am so happy to have finished this project (my second build) and look forward to decorating it for each holiday! I did not angle to the top of the bench because I wanted it to match my first build, the $4.00 chair.

Estimated Cost
$20 - $50
Estimated Time Investment
Day Project (6-9 Hours)
Type of Wood
I used the cheapest wood I could find.

I painted the bench black with a gallon of "oops" paint I found at Home Depot for $7.00.

Your bench looks really nice. I built this same bench for my mom for Christmas. It is sitting in my garage waiting to be sanded and then stained. So nice to see other's projects. Thanks for sharing!

The bench DOES look really nice! Actually, the whole set-up does (I LOVE that green pillow!).
