Original bench design idea

Sheltered garden benches may not need the beautiful design and a fresh paint coat regularly. A rustic bench develops an aged wood patina. Salvaged wood and moss add a unique character to garden benches creating a park-like atmosphere in your garden. Concrete blocks give a touch of industrial style to your outdoor living spaces. Recycling wheel rims and other metal items allow harmonious blending of rough textures and warm wood.
