Beautiful DIY Wood Bench

"This project will show you how to build a bench using a few simple tools and inexpensive wood. In fact, this whole project cost me less than $8. I picked up pine wood from my local hardware store, built the bench and then used my favorite distressing and staining technique on it. It’s a beautiful bench and I get compliments on it all the time! It’s really a lovely addition to my entryway. "
