New Porch Bench

4 Jan

A couple years ago when I got my first pallet, I made a very rustic pallet bench.  Keeping most of the pallet intact, I just cut it in half and used the extra wood for legs.  Seriously simple.


Then I moved it to the porch and made a cushion.


Surprisingly, I still get lots of visitors to my blog (through pinterest) just because of this little bench.  Which I find amusing.  I had no idea it would be so popular.  But re-purposing pallets are the “in thing” right now, so I’m not surprised people like it.

Then a few months ago I made a new bench for our bedroom but ended up not liking it there.  So I replaced the old one on the porch.  I didn’t use any plans for this, just made it up.


It has an shelf on the bottom made of two 2x2s to hold a crate full of gardening things, and the B-Fly box.

The old bench went to the side of the house.  This is one the the best places to sit in the winter.  No wind and sunny.  If I was a cat this is where I would nap.  pbench6
