You will need wood glue, 2-inch wood nails or self-tapping screws plus the paint, varnish, and finishing supplies you choose. Learn how to layer Mindi for farmhouse wood stains below, or use our color dye technique to stain the swatch in any color you desire! You can also mix homemade stains using our recipes. After cutting the pieces, sand and assemble following directions on the printable plans. You can adjust it to make the seat narrower as well, if needed, by trimming the seat surface to the length you want. The legs are easy to DIY angled, and the seat support piece ensures you get a sturdy seat! Because the corner pieces are difficult to fix, I used a nailer to hold the pieces in place before securing them with wood screws. Important tip: If you don’t have a nailer, you can also use hot glue to hold the pieces in place while they’re nailing! How to stain a wooden bench with a rustic finish, I decided to make a tiered farmhouse finish I’ve wanted to try for a long time, by my friend Amanda from Rustic Duck Furniture, see her full tutorial. Randomly apply a coat of two different colors of stains to the wood. Then blend the stains together. The white washes onto the wood and blends into it. To finish it, use a dry brushing technique. (You can see an example of dry brushing on a chalkboard coat stand.) You can see on the bench that this finish gives an antique look to the furniture. love it! Try this finishing touch on other DIY furniture structures too! It adds charm to a character that you don’t get with a regular dye or paint finish, I’m glad I gave it a shot! Of course you can finish it any way you want, which is the fun part about doing your own Easy DIY bench! This stool was inspired by some of the antique French cherry wood chairs I’ve seen online. I modified it to make building easy, as the originals used mortise and tenon joints. I think it turns out perfect! With the addition of center struts, it makes it nice and durable. I’m actually going to donate this seat to my daughter’s new dance studio, but I’ve been thinking of trying some counter-height chairs for my table … because the chairs are dying … but we’ll see. I grabbed these pillows from my Reveal master bedroom for some easy staging, before we hand over this seat to his new home. It will make a great little place for kids to sit while they wait or put on their dance shoes. She previously donated the Kingsize Headboard Bench that she made to my daughter’s old dance studio, so I’m excited to bring this to her new studio! Do you think they will like it? I hope that?
