Awesome DIY Inspiration: DIY Cement Block Bench

Lina Sekine of Simple Living blog has created the most amazing outdoor patio DIY that almost anyone should be able to make themselves at home with great success! This DIY cement block bench can provide ample seating at your next barbecue or backyard gathering, or would be great for just yourself if you wanted to settle down in the afternoon sunshine with a good book.

I’m in awe that something as simple as cement cinder blocks combined with wooden lumber slats (and the addition of some fun homemade cushions) can be put together to create a piece of furniture so simple yet so visually effective – and it looks really comfortable to sit on, too!
