With a little time and effort you can make this outdoor bench that you can use as a bench or as an outdoor coffee table. Better yet make two so you will have one for both places. You can use the bench on the front entrance or on the patio or deck.
The coffee table can be used where ever you have you patio furniture. The bench was built by Diy Candy and was inspired by an outdoor coffee table by Williams Sonoma. The biggest difference between the one made by Diy Candy and the one sold by Williams Sonoma is about 1,200 dollars. definitely worth a few hours of building your own. You can follow the tutorial on the page at Diy Candy and be done on a Saturday.
If you like the planters that sit on either side of the bench there is a link to build them too. It is nice when you can make your own furniture and it turns out looking like you bought it.
