Benches. They're just so dang handy, ya know? In mudrooms, dining rooms, entryways, or even outdoors they're always there for you when you need a little extra seating. In the case of this DIY version, they're even dressed for the occasion, too!
Ben from HomeMade Modern (awesome site, by the way -- if you're not reading it on the regular, get on that!) created this stunningly simple DIY bench that beautifully blends contrasting materials... and all for around $85.
