Be Inspired

Here at Wickes we really want you to make the most of the outdoors this summer, that’s why we are challenging you to pick up your tools and have a go at building your own garden table and bench from decking. All it takes is a little bit of planning, a little bit of time and a little bit of imagination. We’ve produced a How to Video and leaflet which shows you just how easy it is to build the set, so why don’t you have a go? If you do there’s also a chance for you to win one of three £1,000 Wickes vouchers, all you have to do is head to our facebook page and upload a picture of your bench and table, using #projectbench. We’re looking for the most ambitious bench, the most creative and the best first project.

Reinventing the Bench

Who said a bench has to have legs? We set artist Amanda Henriques the challenge to build our bench and she set to work to create something truly inspirational and imaginative. Watch our video to see how Amanda’s spiraling water inspired bench is brought to life using Wickes decking.

On the Bench

Once you’re done customising your own garden bench and table put down your tools, sit back, relax and enjoy your success, or alternatively show off your skills just like footballer Sean Barnes has. He is on the Wickes bench for this game, watch our video to see how he showcases his own style of creativity on the bench.
