DIY "Striped" Benches

I loved the look of these "striped" benches I saw in a wedding venue image. I thought it wouldn't be too hard to recreate that look. I used 8' 2x6's joined with pocket hole screws. It's two flat boards sandwiching a vertical board for the seat. I tried 45 degree angles for the legs and had such a difficult time. Next time, I think I'll just keep it simple with 90 degree cuts. The cost of this little bench was $10 in lumber.

    What a simple, but neat little bench Brooke. I'm sure we have some scraps around I could build one with. The bench I've had for our salt deliver has all but bit the dust so you posting is very timely. Thanks!
