Cinderblock Bench

 I've seen a DIY Cinderblock bench pin on Pinterest for a long time. It is such an easy way to add seating to the backyard. It is a great weekend project.
Picking up supplies
We used 12 cinderblocks
4 4x4 pieces of wood
 1/2 gallon of paint

 The hardest part is waiting for the paint to dry.

I wanted a pop of color. I like to think the paint we picked is Golden Gate Bridge orange not cation cone. I was thinking of making a cushion for the bench but right now is the perfect time of year to find patio pillows in a store. I think it might be cheaper to buy a cushion than sew one.


  1. Such a great idea patio furniture costs a arm and leg!!!

    1. I like sitting crisscross so I don't mind not having back support. I think is is comfortable.
