Cinder Block Banquette
Creating seating in an eye sore of a planter box on the patio.
This was my inspiration.
And this is what I started with...
Handy woman on the go!
A neighbor was giving these away, what luck!!
Cleaned and painted.
Started stacking and building.
This was not easy, I had to level the ground a bit and make sure each layer was as level as I could get it .
Cut and painted a sheet of plywood to fit and form top.
Used an old memory foam mattress, cut to size and covered.
Cute comfortable seating!
A few pillows, a silver mannequin, some art and we are styling!
