Build a BIG Outdoor Storage Bench

$150
1 Day
Easy

Do you need extra outdoor storage?
We were tired of our patio seat cushions getting wet.
So I made this amazing storage bench. Trust me, I'm no carpentry guru. So if I can build this you can too.
It also serves as extra seating.
Check out my post for the complete step-by-step tutorial and instructions.
I think you'll love it :)

    I just started using cheap, pretty vinyl tablecloths to put over mine and it's easy to clean when the cats have been lounging. Shower curtains are useful also.

    outdoor table cloths and shower curtains can be so handy for outdoor benches or to cover throwpillows/cushions.
