MDF? OMG! Build Your Own Banquette Bench

MDF Bench

By contributing partner and guest blogger, Isabelle LaRue

Have you ever searched for a specific piece of furniture for a room in your home only to find that there isn’t anything ready-made that will work? This happened to me when I was looking for a banquette bench for my dining room. After looking in countless stores and online and not finding what I was looking for, I decided the best course of action was to design and build my own bench using 3/4” thick MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard).

This was my first build using MDF and it gave me the opportunity to try and fall in love with SPAX MDF/hardwood screws - they are amazing because you don’t have to drill pilot holes to prevent the wood from splitting and they countersink themselves so there’s no need to use a countersink drill bit.

Hanging Out This Summer

Who knew that there's actually a day just for America's favorite past time? We're not talking baseball here folks...OK, America's second favorite past time - summer naps in the hammock!

Happy National Hammock Day! In honor of this ingenious device that provides us hours of divine laziness we thought we'd share some great inspiration for summer relaxation.
