Go Forth






If you're looking for a weekend project that isn't going to require much more than a trip to the salvage yard and the hardware store....look up.

Love the look of this little bench that I stumbled over at the kriselkeeper blog, by the clever Angela Ferdig. Inspired by a bench in Julianne Moore's home, this little budget project came to fruition. Visit Angela's blog for the scoop, and there's more about it here too.

Now, go forth, gather, drill, sand, wax and sit!

What a beautiful, simple bench, and the sense of order in that entryway is tremendous.

That's a fantastic bench. It looks skinny enough for our narrow front hall. Good idea! Now I'll check out that link.
Have a great weekend!

Oh don't worry, I've spent the last week sanding and painting myself into a frenzy! I do like this idea, so it's straight to the ideas file with this little number. K xx
