I built two of these benches for under $30 of lumber and supplies. They were great Mother's Day gifts that thrilled my mom and mother-in-law. I will have to upload pics of the other one soon. It's already at the lake house and painted a beautiful barn red.

Estimated Cost
$30 for 2 benches
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
pine
Finish Used
I painted with yellow semi-gloss paint, then sanded down the edges to "shabby" it up a bit. The second bench was painted with a barn red color and sanded down, too.
