So, last weekend we helped some friends of ours build a farmhouse table. This weekend we built them a farmhouse bench to go with it! When I was designing this bench I wanted it to be super cheap and easy but still look great and fitting to the farmhouse theme. So this is what I came up with, an incredibly easy to build farmhouse bench with tapered legs. Enjoy!
