I recently had an itch to change out the bench in my entryway. Staying on my ‘shanty’ budget, I started skimming Ana’s site for some ideas. I ran across her Providence Bench and fell in LOVE.
My favorite parts….
It cost me under $15 to build… Yup! Love that!
It took me a couple hours to build and finish… Woohoo!
Here is how she turned out…
This was a very simple build. I used 2 – 2×4’s and 3 – 2×6’s to build the entire thing!
I also used my Kreg Jig® to assemble it. Here are a few tips on where I put my pocket holes.
This is the bottom inside of the legs….
And the top of the legs…
I also used the Kreg Jig® to plank the top of the bench before attaching it to the base.
This is the back of each of my diagonal pieces. I wasn’t worried about covering the pocket holes because I knew they would be facing the wall.
And my bottom piece was attached like this…
I used 1 1/4″ screws through the bottom into the planks to attach the top. I also used Gorilla Wood Glue for all of my joints.
That’s it! I gave everything a coat of Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain in Dark Walnut.
I love how versatile this bench is! I think I could use it in almost any room of my house! It’s so cute and did I mention it was $15?? Yah. That definitely fits my budget! Here are just a few more pics…
I also love that using these plans you can really modify the bench to any length you need! Way to go on these FAB plans Ana!
