bench roundup

bench11.jpg
i’ll admit it, i’m something of a bench freak. i’m always looking for spaces in our home that could use a little bench love and have tried unsuccessfully to snag an affordable long, mid-century bench on ebay for years now. so, at the request of a few readers (and out of my own desire to have a collection from which to choose) i thought i’d build a bench guide and have it be the last guide before the holiday break. there are close to 60 benches to choose from so click here for the full guide or click “read more” below. enjoy!
