ABOUT THE PROJECT: We first featured this bench project on the Today’s Homeowner TV episode titled, “Expanding a Patio for Entertaining” in Season 24.

Homeowner Corrina Murray loves her plants just as much as she loves spending time in her backyard with her family.

However, her collection of container plants was cramping her outdoor entertaining space. So, we built her this bench that unites her love for both!

And now you can build the same bench with our plans. Enjoy!
