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 :)


  1. Ahhhh...she is a real beauty...luv that slipcover! Happy 4th!


  2. the burlap and slipcover combination.

  3. I would love to use this as a coffee table-with a little one on the way-it would be better than my big clunky glass top!
