Hey guys!! I’m back to share the new benches that I built for my new dining table!
If you missed the Restoration Hardware Dining Table that I built for $110 you can see that HERE!
The benches are just a small piece of the massive amount of furniture that I’m building for our new home but each room is starting to fill up 🙂 They are very easy and I was able to build 2 for about $70 making my entire dining set about $180!!
As always, we have the FREE Printable Plans available for you HERE or you can click the image below 🙂
I cut the legs and drilled pocket holes in to them.
I attached the legs to the feet with wood glue and Kreg pocket screws.
I attached the small angle pieces first with wood glue and my Ryobi Airstrike Nailer. If you don’t have a nailer, you can use finishing nails or drill pilot holes for wood screws.
After all of the legs were assembled, I attached them to the bottom of the bench tops with wood glue and pocket hole screws. I used my Ryobi Right Angle Drill to attach the braces to the frame.
I stained both benches with one coat of Carrington stain to match my table. Rust-Oleum and Varathane are by far our favorite stains 🙂 They are very rich in color and they dry in 1 hour! Perfect for busy (and impatient) moms … and dads 😉
That was it 🙂 One reason we love DIY is because it frees up our budget to spend more on accessories! I found the rug at World Market for about $150 for a 6×9 (Charcoal Basket Weave Jute Rug) and I found those awesome wicker chairs at Pier 1 for $99 each 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by!
