Crate bench with storage bins for students' journals... Super simple to make and not very costly. Supplies: milk crates (got them for free from Kroger), zip ties, plywood board, foam, fabric and matching storage drawers (from Lowes)
DIY Stump Turned Table (maybe also for outside?) (redheadcandecorate) 1. Bug spray the heck out of it 2. Dry for a week. 3. Brush off dirt. 4. Electric sand enough to get a fresh, clean look. 5. Glossy polyurethane paint - lots of coats!
