Ana White Simple Bench {Building}

I gave you all a little sneak peek of the Ana White Simple Bench in the Board and Batten post.  It really is a SIMPLE bench.  You could even build the whole bench with a few simple tools.

Here's the box all together.  I built mine with wood glue and a nail gun.

1x2s on the front to give it a nice finished look.

We used a router to round the edges of the bench.

Then I primed it with Zinsser 123 primer and spray painted with Rustoleum Spray paint in satin finish.  The color is called Eden and is a nice green, not too lime green but not a kelly green either.

 Love it!  I built a couple little crates for shoes the same way I built the mini crates.

My Mom sewed a cute little monogrammed cushion too.  The fabric is from the premier prints chocolate/natural line.

The accessories were just found around the house.   Love how it turned out.  The bench was around $40 with wood and paint!
