Easy Garden Bench

Would you believe that this chic, modern garden bench backed by lime green lattice panels was once an old paneled door? First we cut out the panels on both ends of the door for the shrub containers, filling in any visible channels with wood scraps and putty. (Choose containers that are beefy enough to support the weight of someone sitting on the bench. They should be larger than the door panels but narrower than the door so that the door will rest securely on top.) Reinforce the door by screwing 1x3 boards along its edges, then prime and paint the whole thing. Once dry, set the door atop the containers in the desired spot in your yard, and fill the containers with potting mix and shrubs. Now take a seat -- you've earned it!
