It’s that super exciting time to share my DIY Rustic Wood Bench.  Squeal!  If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen some of the process.  The hubs and I tackled our first furniture project and partnered with Ryobi on some of our tools.  Last year I asked for Ana White’s book, The Handbuilt Home and I’ve been dying to work on a project (or two) for quite some time.  We finally decided on a weekend and I picked out the Rustic Bench.

With extra seating and handy storage, our mudroom bench is an ideal solution for entryway clutter. Rustic, handsawn pine-board construction make this a natural for cabin, camp or home.

After gluing, nailing, drilling and screwing…  the bench slowly but surely came together.  Aaaand, I even got my feet wet in using the power tools.

I sure wish my husband and I were more “handy.” Love this bench. It looks great, Kelly! Now, if I only owned more than a hammer and 2 screwdrivers…. (Actually can’t complain b/c our landlord lets us use his abundant supply of power tools if we know what we’re doing
