Want to create some extra seating for your home and do it with style? Why not build a bench? A beautiful, sturdy DIY bench is an excellent addition to any mudroom, foyer or outdoor space. If you think building a bench from scratch is difficult, think again! Benches are pretty easy to make and you don’t need to be very good at woodworking just to build one. As long as you have the proper tools required, anyone with simple DIY skill can easily assemble a beautiful, sturdy bench in no time.

One of the pros of making your own bench is that you can make it as minimalist as you want or as complex as your woodworking skills can handle. If you’re a beginner, we recommend that you stick with the simpler backless bench plans as they are easier to build and they cost less. Depending on what type of materials you have at hand, you can even reuse or upcycle some of your old furniture and save some money! If you plan to place your bench outdoor, be sure to use woods such as teak or cedar which can withstand all types of weather.

When you finished building the bench, it would be a good idea to give it a new coat of paint. Be sure to choose colors that matches your interior decor or a color scheme that blends well with the surrounding furniture pieces. If you prefer it to look rustic, you can skip the painting part if you want to. There are many other ways you can make your new bench look more comfy and painting is just one of the options.
