Necessity and frugality are the parents of #diy.
I wanted a bench for the end of our bed, with storage for our throw pillows. It’s a king-sized bed and I didn’t want anything super fancy. We won’t be sitting on it much and I was reluctant to spend what appeared to be minimum of $60 in any given store.
My solution was 2 2x12x8s. @homedepot did two length cuts to help me get the lumber into my car, which meant I only had to do one cut to finish the project.
Wood filler in the butt-end joints (no fancy Kreg Jig needed for this). And now I’m prepping for stain. Total lumber cost $21.I had everything else I needed on hand.
