Building a bench was a family project this summer.
Our house is situated on a peninsula. On one side, there is a little beach. This is the spot I bring our dog Drayton to do his morning laps to deplete some of the Labrador puppy energy. The ducks are fleeing a potential capture.
Since this is part of our daily routine, I wanted a bench to rest while Drayton swims. Drayton and I have been walking the kids to school (or rather, he drags me) and then coming to this little spot.
This is certainly a crew of DIYers.
Rob found some plans on-line. Search "how to build a bench," and you will find many different styles.
Now, all we need to do is seal the wood, so it will last for many years.
This is a great spot to sit under the shade of the River Birches and sip something warm!
Not interested in building your own? Here are some great looking benches! The 'Softcross 2-Seater Outdoor Garden Bench' is one of my favorites and is reasonably priced!
I hope you all are having a great start to the new school year!
Thanks for stopping by!
