On a budget? Need some furniture quickly? Then this Budget-Friendly Easy Playhouse Bench may be a fun and creative solution! It all started with building my kids a playhouse. Then came the realization that we need furniture, but we're on a tight budget. So, I mixed and matched ideas from a few different projects I had seen on 1001pallets.com. From there, I created my playhouse bench. I'm very proud of it thus far. When I finish the paint and cushioning, I'll post more pictures.

Budget-Friendly Easy Playhouse Bench - Start with two pallets and a free day:

First, I took a pallet and cut it just past the center stringer. Next, I built two support arms out of more deck boards, making two squares, just minus the bottom board, so the arms/legs look like an upside-down U shape. Next, I mounted the bench piece to the legs using deck screws on the front and back. Then, I installed the backrest and secured it in place with more deck screws, both to the legs and to the bench.

Now that everything was secured, I had some fun with paint. I used a blue color for the bench and a stain on the legs/armrests. I'm not sure if I'll leave it this way, but I'll definitely be adding cushions to make it more fun for kids to play on. I also made sure that I made it a kid-friendly height so that they can get on and off of it easily. The other thing was not to make it too heavy so the kids can have fun rearranging their play space when they wanted.

For some added fun, you could cut holes in that are just big enough for the bottom of plastic cups. You could also fill in the gaps of the seat bench and backrest too.
