I'm so excited about this next project I've finished up - my RUSTIC FARMHOUSE BENCH!
A few months ago, I asked my husband to make me a bench. I told him I would find the plans, and it didn't have to be perfect. With the help of his friend Josh and Josh's dad (but, mostly Josh's dad) , my husband came home one night with this:
It was perfect!! Just what I wanted. It took me a while to finish the rest of the process; the staining, painting, and sanding; but once I did, I was so thrilled with how the bench turned out. And because those are all 2x4's, the materials for this project were under $50. It would have been less, but my husband decided to buy the Kreg Jig that's mentioned in the building plans.
I spent the next few months finding time here and there to finish the bench, and here are the results.
