I would love to have a garden to put a nice bench in. I would love to have a garden plot, period. Being that I have only dwelled in apartments in my adult life means that I have become pretty good at container gardening, but when your entire balcony is taken up by gardening containers, it leaves little room for benches. In any case, I have always loved the look of a nice bench whether it be in a mudroom or an outdoor setting, benches are charming and perfect for that quick seat you need to take. If you want to make your own bench perfect for your needs, here are some great DIY benches to try your hand at crafting, many of which are not expensive or time-consuming!
