I am a Bench Hoarder

No, really.  I can’t resist buying up little benches.  I just love transforming them and always enjoy picturing them in their new home.  Unfortunately, that home always seems to be my home.  Let’s look at the evidence, shall we?

Exhibit A:

I found this one at a church garage sale and bought it with every intention of selling it.  It now lives in my daughter’s room.

Exhibit B:

My vintage Singer sewing benches.  Notice I said, “MY.”

I actually bought the bench with the straight legs when I attended Round Top Antique Week last Fall.  I was certain I would sell it…until 3 days after I brought it home when an extremely generous neighbor of mine left another vintage sewing bench on my front porch.  Here is a quick peek at its transformation:

Now that I had a pair of these little benches, how was I supposed to give them up, or worse, separate them?  So, now they live on either side of the media cabinet in my family room.

Exhibit C:

This vintage bench also tugs at my heart strings.

I really do plan to sell this one.  As a matter of fact, I just listed it.  But, it sure does look nice in my entry.  Hmmm.

  1. Wow– they all look great… Keep the one in the entry, it looks perfect there. I wish I knew someone nearby to help me with home design– I am so confused!

    • Thank you, Kathy! I actually sold the bench, but I just look at it as a challenge to find another. 🙂 If you don’t have anyone nearby to help you with home design, have you considered e-design? It is an economical way to get a custom design plan from someone via communication through the web. I actually offer that service, but there is a wealth of other e-designers who offer that service, as well. If you’d like to know more about e-design services, please feel free to email me at nestersnest at gmail dot com. Thank you again and I appreciate you for taking time to read my blog! – Jess
