Having outdoor garden benches in your backyard, patio or porch is a great way to sit, relax, and enjoy your surroundings.
Building your own projects can be a fun weekend hobby. Building outdoor projects for your garden, porch, or patio is a good way to sharpen your carpentry skills.
Start by looking for plans for the style of bench you want. Next gather your tools and material, and now you are ready to start building your own garden bench.
You can build outdoor benches in many styles and sizes. They can be decorated or painted in a variety of ways. Painting or staining will give it a nice look, and make your bench last longer. You can also choose just to let it weather to get a rustic silver look. If you do paint, the paint will eventually peel and flake, requiring touch ups to keep it looking nice. Stain is available in many tones, and it will require less maintenance.
