Large Rustic X Bench

Here it is. Our first building project (not attached to a wall) that we used plans for:) I am so happy with the way it turned out. We had been looking for a bench for months. I was thinking that I would find something I like, refinish it and then upholster the top. But then I came across this post from a wonderful blog (that I will be using TONS more ideas from) and knew that this was going to be our bench:) I am happy to say that I think I have finally found a hobby that we can ALL get use to:) The kids have fun, we have fun...and we actually walk away with a finished piece! Love that!
