This is a the perfect gift for the Dad in our house.

The Dad around here likes to put his feet up. He works a long day and likes to relax when he gets home. 

What could he want more for Father's Day than putting his feet up on a brand new foot stool? Especially one built with love. 

I started out with pieces of an old fence I found on the side of the road and following the directions from Beyond the Picket Fence I went ahead and began the easy assembly.

All I needed was a few pieces of 2x4's and some pallet wood for the top.  

My 2x4's were already a dark aged color so I threw on a quick coat of white paint and let the dark wood show through.

Getting to this point was a breeze. Becky's directions were a cinch to follow.

I found these great letters in the clearance section at Michael's, they are repositionable and can be used over and over.

I am thinking my husband will love this on the deck this summer to sit back, relax and put his feet up so I'm painting it blue to match the colors of the deck furniture.

I gave it a quick rough brushing of navy blue over the letters...

When I peeled off the letters I gave the top of the foot stool a quick sanding with the power sander then a coat of an outdoor sealer.

I think this is a great Father's Day gift and will get a lot of use all summer.

    1. The bench is really easy to make and extremely sturdy... I'm thinking I need a few more. My grandson has been sitting on it and pulling it up to the table as a bench... perfect size for that too!
