Prepare the tools and materials. You will need lumber, a saw, or anything to cut the lumber, a screw, screwdriver, nails (optional), a pencil, ruler, paint, tape measurement, and cushions. Start by making four triangles 90 degrees narrow. All of them be in the correct sizes. Arrange them in one line. Then, assemble the wood lumber on top of them to make the sitting space.
Continue to make the seat-back. You will need some lumbers of the same size in 51’ or more. Attach them one by one. Make sure you attach the screws or nails carefully. Don’t forget to check the strength of each part.
Then, you will get a wooden bench with four triangle legs. Cool, huh? This bench is ready to use. As long as you have checked all the connections, it will not break. Though four people sit together here, this bench will still be strong. You can try it after you’ve done this project. The one who loves a rustic theme needs not doing another thing anymore. The color is good.
You can layer it with acrylic paint too. Or, just use colorful paints for a more cheerful garden bench. Let it dry under the direct sun. It will need several hours.
The last, add the cushions. You are free to choose the colors you want. Use them to fill the sitting space and seat-back. Now, you get the bench ready. Try it! It will complete your backyard or garden area. Sit on it, enjoy the afternoon view, and have fun with your little family. You can add a fire pit in front of it too.
