First, I have to just say that my husband is THE best! After seeing these cute little stools/benches on Pinterest (I'm sure you're not surprised), I knew that I NEEDED to have some. I knew they would be PERFECT for our backyard patio area. So what did I do? I showed my husband and he quickly got to work. What a good man I have! After he had them built, I did a little painting, sanding, and staining. And that's it!
