Have you always wanted one of those gorgeous around-the-tree benches but never wanted to drop $1,500 or more on them? Well Heather from Too Inspired to Sleep felt the same way, until she had a eureka moment! Why not use kitchen chairs!? So, she set out to find the perfect set of chairs, and ended up finding a whole dining set for just $75. With a little bit of elbow grease and some paint, they were ready to form the base of her tree bench. She then created new seats for them with thin wood to make a slatted bench. After she found the perfect tree, she placed her bench and braced all of the individual chairs.
Check out Heather’s finished bench. It has to be such a great place to have a cup of coffee and a read a good book on a summer evening.
