Since revamping our firepit a few weeks ago, my wife wanted a couple of sturdy benches to accompany the logs we use for chairs during bonfires.
So we went shopping around a bit and didn't really finding anything to our liking... We did however get quite a few laughs at the prices of outdoor benches.
$150 each for a shoddy built and crappily painted metal bench? ... Nice try retail stores, nice try.
My goal was to build two for under $100 which I did. Although it can be done for a lot cheaper if you already have materials on hand, especially the stain/paint (The Restore 2x paint was over $30!).
