South Carolina fall comes a little later than up north.
There are signs of it when I walk through the nature trails around my neighborhood. The beautyberry shrubs start to turn very purple and that is a sign the fall is coming. Meanwhile, we can enjoy the summer for a few more months, but these whisperings of fall inspired some decor ideas for my new teak bench, and I picked a few stems off the beautyberry shrub. I knew the purple seed would go great with my new teak garden bench, plus a matching pillow.
I was super excited to put together my new bench from Teak Closeouts. They have amazing blow-out sales on all their teak furniture and accents pieces. My son and I had a blast putting it together, and laughing our heads off when we realized we had been assembling it completely backwards! Oof! Normally I am a pretty good at putting together outdoor furniture, but my son wanted to help, and that’s when the laughter started. Once we realized what we had done, we enlisted the help of my husband, who got us back on track. The bench was together in 10 quick minutes
Before your start assembling the bench, check to see if all the pieces are there!
All the pieces of the garden bench were nicely packed in a heavy plastic. Everything was there including the tool and screws. How many times have you put together something to find that there are pieces somehow missing?
The holes lined up perfect when placing the teak pieces together. One key tip when assembling anything is to screw the bolts in lightly first. Once all the screw are in, then screw the bolts tightly. I was very impressed with the quality of the teak. It was a solid and strong, an indicator that it’s a good piece of furniture.
