BUILD YOUR OWN DIY CINDER BLOCK BENCH FOR A UNIQUE SEATING SOLUTION
I like the way cinder blocks look, while also being cheap and easy to work with. I love the look of gray and concrete, and with cinder blocks, you don’t have to shape the concrete yourself.
The bench we liked the most was the one from Kayla’s Basement. We pretty much followed her instructions but without the cushion.
DIY CINDER BLOCK BENCH
WHAT YOU NEED:
-Pieces of wood (4x4x8)
For the space we were using, 8′ was too long for a bench width, so we (“we” meaning my husband) cut each 4×4 down to a 7′ length.
We then coated the wood with Thompson’s Waterseal to protect it from the elements. You can also stain the wood if you want, but I really liked the natural wood look.
Once it was done, we finalized placement of the 12 blocks (6 on each side, with 4 standing upright vertically, and 2 stacked on top of them horizontally).
