I love benches!
They are so versatile. You can use them inside or outside, and they can act as extra seating or as a display area!
Adding a bench to an entry way is a perfect way to allow guests put on shoes in comfort as they are leaving your home. You can place one in the backyard and expand your space to display your flower pots.
A bench is a great way to start building furniture. In general they are simple to make and they tend to be easy on the budget. 2 X 4s are the typical piece of lumber needed, and those are quite easy to work with. Choosing a simple look generally translates to a simple build.
