In winter- it always seems like I crave simple changes in the house.
Like new bedding or moving furniture around in a room for a different look
Sometimes it's a new old treasure that swaps places with something else.
Something like a $5 old weathered bench
as a coffee table.
With uneven slats of wood on the top
a little bit of a warble to its shape
a paint speckled
and old rusted wire holding it together at the bottom of the legs
this bench is a charmer.
It is made of oak I think
and looks to be somewhat mission style
with slats on each end and simple details like the center
and subtle arch on each side
I wasn't looking for a bench when I found it
but there it was sitting in a shed that I was rummaging through at a sale
Old, weathered and worn
somewhat rickety and warbled
Yeah, you know I loved it.
I wanted something smaller and different in the living room than the tufted bench
Something more rustic with lots of personality and quirks
and that could hold a bevy of candles for warming up winter evenings
It was perfect and I am loving that quirky charm
My big projects have been on hold over here thanks to the muscle in my neck
that is taking some time to chill and my husbands insane schedule the past couple weeks.
So for now, I am doing a lot of planning and jotting down and shopping for some new pieces online
and cooking in a kitchen that is stuck in the middle of a renovation ;)
But I am excited about changes that are coming
and some of the bigger changes that will hopefully get back in motion again soon.
