About Project

Author Notes: 

Hi everyone - hope you had a wonderful Holiday weekend celebrating our Country's Birthday!

Did you get any DIY done?  

Feels great to get that list a little shorter doesn't it?  

Well, so sorry to do this to you ... but we have new plans for you today!

I've been loving the little benches with the reclaimed wood tops, so I teamed up with my good DIY friend Brook from Being Brook to get you these plans!

Brook made these benches for the foot of her children's beds.

I love how Brook matched the paint to the quilts, but kept the wood stain of the DIY headboards the same as the wood stain on the benches!

Aren't these benches just darling?  Brook has lots more photos including construction photos in her post here, so please take a second to go visit.  And we'll be sharing a finishing tutorial as well a little later on!

Plans follow!

XO Ana

General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!

Finishing Instructions

Preparation Instructions: 
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
