How to: Modern Planter Bench

How to: Modern Planter Bench

Jun 25, 2007

Two in One. Adding additional seating and some greenery are two basic objectives for a stylish outdoor space. We found this great solution that combines both in one piece via Sunset magazine's website.

They used two large ceramic pots to act as legs, and built a wood top that rests right over them. We love the simple concept and could see lots of ways to customize it to any space. Click here to see the step-by-step instructions. Has anyone ever made something like this, or has something similar in their outdoor space?

UPDATE: AT:LA reader Jessika sent us a picture (click here to view) of her version that she made! She says that "It was SIMPLE. I used $1.29 Walmart carwash buckets, handles removed and completely painted, and then simple pine, sanded and stained (to match my frame). I added a few trivets for some additional style. IT is a WONDERFUL, sturdy bench. I put succulents in there, that way I could not have to water them too often (the buckets don't have holes b/c they're on carpeting and I didn't want to deal with mud).It's a great project, and took me only a couple of hours." (thanks Jessika!)
