Guess what I am making?

I am making something, and it is not just a mess either. 
 Every year now, for the past few years, I have my best friend pick a project, or tell me something she would like to have for her birthday.
I get the supplies needed to create/complete the project as part of my gift.
One year we did her bathroom, and her bedroom. We build closet/cabinets and stuff like that and painted, etc.

Whatever she picks though, I get the supplies and then we get together for some great fun and we do the project together.
This year it is a hall chair/bench whatever they are called. This is the prep. On the chairs are the boards for the backs, all base coated in black.
On the table are the boards for the sides. So the project begins. I have no idea how to build one of these things but I am hoping they will come out great.
Hers will be a uniform blue and mine I am painting Yellowish Cupboard White buttermilk paint.
 The small boards are not for the bench, those are prepping of sign boards for the store. Oh and on the end is one of the cheese boxes that my friend gave me from her basement. Oh what shall I do with those.
 Yes that is suppose to be a clothes drying rack along the wall. However I have come to realize it makes a great drying rack for wood. Right to the left of it is my woodstove so makes for some quick drying. Works great.
I will post more pictures as a go along, and I will post the final project, no matter how it turns out.
Have a great weekend all.
