Buying already made benches (or really any outdoor furniture) can be so incredibly expensive!!! Save money with this DIY outdoor bench!
Why in this ever-loving world do we continue to break our banks when there are so many inexpensive DIY projects that we can do ourselves?!?!! These are so easy that even little 5 year old Sweet Sally or 60 year old Grandma Goldilocks can do it as well! Put a little pout on your face and put your hubby to work! ✌
Before I even thought about suggesting this project to you, I checked out the pricing on multiple home improvement sites. Here’s what I found:
⛥HomeDepot- cinder block costs $1.50 each (you need 14), 4×4 pressure treated wood costs $8.42 each (you need 6), cushions $6.98 each (I accounted for 3 cushions)– GRAND TOTAL IS $92.46!!
⛥Lowe’s- cinder block costs $1.42 each (14 needed as well), 4×4 pressure treated wood costs $8.42 each (6 needed as well), cushions $6.98 each (again, 3 cushions)– GRAND TOTAL IS $91.34!!
That is absolutely amazing and unheard of!!!
I also went on to check out pricing of already made outdoor benches, and you will just not believe what I found…. Anywhere between a whopping $398- $998. For me, that’s absurd. You are literally saving anywhere between $300-$900 by making an easy assemble bench yourself!
I absolutely love the look of this DIY bench. It has a little modern style to it, a little country, and just the right size. Oh yea, I can also customize the seating cushions to be whatever I choose, rather than taking what is provided with an already made bench 😉 You can also pick up a can of cinder block paint for fairly cheap, if you so choose to put color onto your bench.
⛥⛥Get your children together, bring your significant other, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunts, uncles, friends, and coworkers- and bring them all to the store with you so they can pick up these items to make their own DIY benches as well! That’s how easy this project is. Minimal work and you can put it ANYWHERE you please! ✌
