This is a great touch to any garden, and you can use any style depending on the style of chairs you choose. This is the toughest of our five projects, so if it isn’t in your skill range, we have more! This one takes a little cutting of lumber, but still a pretty easy project for anyone willing to get their hands dirty. If you look at the bench, you will see how the basic assembly process goes, but here’s a quick step by step.

Face two wooden chairs next to each other. Using lumber from the home improvement yard, or better yet, recycle wood pallet slats, connect the chairs on both sides along the seat base. Don’t make these side pieces too long as you want the bench to be stable. Now measure the length from the back of one seat, to the back of the other. Cut and attach lumber over the seat to create a new bench seat. Now add lumber pieces for the “back” of the bench. Paint and seal, and enjoy!
