A New Bench with Personality
Bobby and I added a new bench to our booth at Old South Antique Mall. This one sort of took on a Sundance look-and it is our "go to" look....a little rustic and primitive, but it would mix in most any space. It has loads of personality-and the neutral color and fabrics allow that "mix-it -in" style to work for most anyone. The bench is somewhat oversized...and with the great chunky spindle legs and distressed cream finish, it would suit as a coffee table-add your tray to the top if you wish. With or without the prewashed muslin slipcover, this piece adds a charm to the utilitarian bench. We added a four inch upholstered foam cushion to the top-covered in a rustic natural burlap-to add a good look and texture. I love these versatile pieces-so many uses- and practical furniture with good looks, too :)
"Cottage and Cabin" is my collection of designs for your home and garden. I am a designer/seamstress, and I truly do what I love and love what I do. I enjoy all aspects of home decor, especially cottage style furnishings and designing window treatments and nurseries. As much as I love sewing, I also spend lots of time redesigning and painting old furniture and salvage pieces.
