The DIY engine is still revving while the outdoor weather permits! Maybe you’ve done a few small DIY projects here and there – painted a couple of rooms, fixed up an old dresser, but now you’re feeling ready for some power tools.
This tutorial is the perfect way to stretch your DIY muscles and begin to get comfortable using a drill and a saw. In this short video, Carrie shows us a step by step, super simple tutorial for building a cute and practical DIY bench. This project is very beginner friendly and only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish.
This bench is perfect for your small front porch or ideal in an entryway as a place to sit down and put shoes on before stepping out for the day.
Enjoy and happy DIY’ing!
