Three Benches

Let me start off by saying, "I LOVE this time of year!!!"

I found this picture on one of my many GOOGLE image viewing sessions. I immediately fell in love and had to have my own.SO I went to the best place around to find plans for the "5 Board Bench." I went to Ana White's website (aka Knock Off Wood) and downloaded her plans. Go HERE for the plans.We went to the Home Depot to buy the wood. I think this whole project was around $100. Matt then spent a few hours building the benches for me. All three after assembly. I was really torn on what color to paint them. I thought red at first, but I thought it may clash, so I went with black instead.

Here they are decorated...

I even made some more "SQUARE PUMPKINS". I made smaller ones last year. GO HERE for that tutorial.
And I made some more spraypaint pillows.


Go HERE for a tutorial on how to make pillows similar to these.
(I didn't use KRYLON Glitter Blast on these).

I will be adding these pillows to my Etsy Shop...
