In addition to the seats for my guided reading table, I also created this bench. I used zip ties to tie 3 crates together. Then I added a cushion for the top. The cushion may not fit exactly. However, I did not have to make anything. It even ties to the top of the crates. This is a cushion that is used on outdoor furniture. Now I have spaces for baskets. I keep puppets and stuffed animals in them.
