Modern, classic, romantic, rustic: whatever the style of your garden, this solid bench can be featured prominently. With a few pieces of wood and some basic tools, you’re ready to start. Painting your bench enables you to customize it to your decor, but both cedar as a wood choice and wood stains are also valid options.

Accessorized with cushions, surrounded by small lights, this garden bench is an invitation to relax. Next to the fireplace is one ideal spot, but there are so many possibilities for you to choose from.
