My New Old White Farm Table Bench

OK…

It’s Finished!

If you read my blog… then you know I have been working on this old farm table.

You saw last week when it sadly went under construction…

and

we all cried… or at least I did.

But it had to be done because this is what I needed.

An Old Farm Table Bench!

It’s the perfect big, hefty, rough, worn, naturally distressed bench for my foyer/entry way!

I love it!

I haven’t added any decor around it… YET!

My sweet hubby just got through painting and it’s a mess around my house.  He painted the dining room and the entry way “Bone White”.

But… I did play around with some pillows.

I have lots of this rusty red color accented through out my living room (which is open to the entry way), so I believe these pillows will fit right in!

So what am I working on now you ask?

Or… well… maybe you didn’t…

But I’m going to tell you anyway… Ha!

I’m working on what’s going to hang above the bench… I had to go out to the burn pile for this one…

Stay Tuned! 

 

Thanks For Stopping By!
