A Storage Bench Provides Much Needed Outdoor Space
If you are like most of us, there are two things that you cannot get enough of: storage and outdoor seating. What if I told you that I have the perfect solution to solve both of these problems and that it comes in a stylish, hard to resist package?
The truth is that by using storage benches to provide comfortable outdoor seating you can solve your storage issues as well. Do you just simply not have the space to store those table cloths after the family gathering is over? Just tuck them away in your storage bench and they will be handy the next time you need them.
And there are so many styles of storage benches available that you will be sure to find the perfect piece to match your existing décor, personality and budget. Whether your outdoor space is eclectic, country or formal, there is a storage bench for you. You can choose from popular styles such as American, Nantucket and Bridgehampton, just to name a few.
Take for instance the American Storage Bench which is lovingly crafted using only the finest Western Red Cedar. This classically styled bench is both comfortable and exquisite in its natural beauty. The cedar slats of the bench are stained with oil to bring out the natural beauty of the wood and to ensure its long life.
Do you prefer something a little more customizable? Maybe the Nantucket Storage Bench would do the trick. This storage bench features heavy construction and generously scaled pieces crafted from Southern Yellow Pine. Available in 28 painted finishes, the Nantucket storage bench can also be customized to match your unique space. You can choose from eye-catching colors such as lime, tangerine and canary or more classic colors such as white, mint green and sunny yellow. There are also four different finishes available including natural, pristine, washed and distressed.
Or you may like the Bridgehampton Storage Bench. This storage bench is also available in 28 colors and four finishes and is hand crafted from kiln-dried pine which makes it a bench that is unsurpassed when it comes to comfort and class.
No matter what style you prefer, you will be sure to find the perfect bench to fit your space and one that will not bust your budget. With the price of most storage benches hovering at approximately $400, you can afford whatever your heart desires. And these benches are so durable, many last for decades, that it makes the money that you invest into outdoor storage benches worth every last penny.
So stop worrying about where you are going to store all of your outdoor accessories that seem to just keep getting piled up inside the garage door. You can also stop worrying about not having anywhere for guests to sit during your next outdoor gathering. What is there to worry about? You can solve both of these problems with a beautiful and practical storage bench.

Mustard: The Greatest Among The Herbs
Mustard plants have been used for thousands of years for their pungent flavour in condiments, spicy greens for side dishes and salads, and in traditional folk medicine and Chinese herbal medicine to treat a variety of ailments.

Mustards seeds are mentioned in ancient Sanskrit writings dating back about 5,000 years ago and the Bible calls mustard "the greatest among the herbs." Valued for their intense flavours and healing properties, mustard seed and the plant itself have been grown for its beautiful yellow flowers and spicy seedling leaves.
