Craft a Cozy Feel

17. Bench Border
If your deck is low enough not to require a railing, build a bench around the perimeter to provide seating and a sense of enclosure.This bench wraps two sides of the deck, but you could build a smaller version on just one side using leftover deck boards for the seat and pressure-treated 26s (about $5 for an 8-foot board; at home centers) for the supporting structure.
