I got the idea for this bench from the following site: http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2014/08/diy-upholstered-bench.html
The only thing I did differently from that site is the top of the bench which I made from 2×4’s. Everything is pine. I purchased the legs from Osborne Wood. I’ve never really wanted to get into turning. I know it would be fun but I have so many tools as it is already and there’s not too many projects where I need something turned.
All joining faces are still glued even though I used the Kreg screws.
I painted the base in Sherwin Williams Canvas White. The top I treated with Minwax Conditioner first then 10 minutes later stained with General Finishes Candlelight oil stain.
I protected the base with minwax spray water based polycrylic. I protected the top with minwax spray poly.
