I can’t know why I was so determined to have a bench on this small porch but, I stopped at just about every store that I thought would have an outdoor bench. Walmart, Home Goods, TJ Max, Marshalls, Target, Kroger, HEB, Goodwill, several flea markets, Lowes, Home Depot… I could really go on, but you get the point. Even purchased and brought home a few of ’em. Let’s just say, those relationships didn’t work out. Then I had the bright idea to make my own bench with cinder blocks and wood. You guessed it, that didn’t work either.
I was at my whit’s end and ready to give up. I had 1 weekend left to complete this project and besides staining my front door, I hadn’t done anything. Then, as if it were meant to be, during a quick unrelated visit to Big Lots, I stumbled across this beauty. Unfortunately, Big Lots no longer carry this bench. I’ll post a link to a similar bench at the end of the post.
I used a high heat black spray paint. And, after a few coats of black spray paint…
This bench fits perfectly on my porch.
