Without a doubt, our favorite projects around the homestead are the ones that both solve a constant problem and are cheap to do -– with bonus points awarded if the resulting concoction happens to look good. Reader Ethernectar built this garden bench this weekend to solve his outdoor storage issues, and he achieved all three goals.
It’s a simple bench with plenty of room for potting or other garden-type activities, and it didn’t cost a bunch. Add in the fact that the entire project, including a trip to the big box, took less than a day from start to finish, and you’ve got a win all the way around. Well done, Ethernectar!
