DIY Bench

I decided that since summer is slowly coming to an abrupt end and school will start up again, I would finish the summer with a big project.  Yes, this bench is big for me considering the only power tool I own is a drill.  I went to Lowe's and had the handymen cut my pieces for me and took them home to build this darling little bench that took me about 2 hours to make (not including the stain and stencil; that only took about an hour).  Sorry, there is no tutorial for this one, but I was inspired by a great blog I found via Pinterest.  Check out some of her projects, really cute!


Yep, added it to the bedroom with my cute DIY Hook Hanger! :)

Any last minute end-of-the-summer projects in your line-up?

BTW, I'm linking up over at The Shabby Creek Cottage for Transformation Thursday! And The Shabby Nest for Frugal Friday! And tatertots & jello for Weekend Wrapup! Go check out all the fun projects over there!
