It’s the middle of summer and we are spending more and more time outdoors as the weather is cool. To make your staying outdoors more comfortable, you’ll need some functional and stylish furniture. Today I’d like to share some cool outdoor storage benches, this is a perfect piece of outdoor furniture that you can use both for sitting and storing, it’s essential for small outdoor spaces.
This cool and easy dark-stained wooden board bench from ana-white.com is pretty simple to build, you can vary its size and color. The plan is easy: find out the size you want and measure and cut your boards, then attach them to each other and to the legs. Choose a paint or stain and finish your work.
This storage box and bench is also easy to make and the plan is mostly the same as with the previous one. The faux louvers may look difficult, but tilting the slats is actually very simple. Use the cutting scheme and them attach boards to each other. Paint or spray paint it if you want or just stain.
This piece is ideal for any outdoor space, it can be used on a small balcony or on a large terrace. This bench box is built of plywood panels, so it saves what’s inside from the bad weather conditions, and that’s why it’s ideal as a pool bench – no water will damage your things!
The next bench is a big storage one, it’s built of plywood panels and left unfinished, just sealed a bit. That’s a cool and simple idea for those who need more storage and seating space, and there’s nothing difficult here, you won’t need any special skills.
This tiny outdoor storage bench is ideal for small spaces, first of all, for balconies, you can easily place it even in the smallest one. Build a basic wooden boards box or create one of crates and then make a proper cushion on top to make the seating cozier.
This X leg bench is a cool rustic piece for any outdoor space. Make a regular X leg bench and then leave some space under the top to place crates for storage. Stain the piece as you want or paint it.
This boards and plywood box is great for small outdoor spaces, just place it in the corner. Paint it as you like and you may also add some pillows or a cushion seat for comfortable sitting.
If you need really a big piece for your backyard to accommodate all the guests, build this wood and lumber corner bench with storage inside. It will take you some time and efforts but it’s worth it!
This corner bench a bit smaller than the previous one but looks no less cool! You can build it using wooden boards and then staining as you wish. The half of the seating top can be opened for storage.
The last project for today is this corner storage bench made of separate sections. Choose boards or panels you like and cover the base you build with them – simple, cool and rustic.
