How to Build a Farmhouse Bench (for under $20)

This post contains affiliate links.

One of my all-time biggest dreams is to partner with Home Depot on a project for my home. I grew up going to the Home Depot with my dad, and helping him on projects for our home, or getting “craft wood” for my mom to make decorations. Now my kids are doing the same thing with my husband and me. So you can imagine how excited I am to share this project I worked on with the Home Depot. Today I am over on their blog, sharing how to build a farmhouse bench for my entryway.

These plans came from Ana White, and instructions from Shanty 2 Chic

Oh, and this was the project that made me fall in love with my Kreg Jig. If you don’t have one, you should think about asking Santa for one, because it will change your furniture building life.

This farmhouse bench was super quick and easy. So easy, in fact, that I built it 100% all by myself. The only help I needed from my husband was carrying it into the house. It looks amazing in our entryway, and really opens the space up and adds a farmhouse feel to our home. (And how cute is my Doily Wreath in that giant frame?)

 This bench cost LESS than $20? That’s a smokin’ deal. And it means that this is the perfect project for you to try yourself (and you can ask your husband for help if you want, I won’t judge).

This would be the perfect bench next to a dining table, in the entryway like I have it, or even around the fire pit in the back yard. The sleek look and clean lines of this bench really make it a show stopper, nobody will know you only spend 20 bones on this baby. And your husband will think you’re pretty cool, too.

Hey there! Leave me some comment love!

I am a crafty, do it yourself mom, doing everyday mom stuff with a little glitter in my hair and paint on my jeans. And blogging about it all along the way. I am a firm believer that no matter the project, with the right tools, good instructions, and a little bravery, YOU can do anything. {click on my photo to read more about me}
