I Need A...

Bench. Not just any bench. It needs to be a little rustic.

It doesn't have to be fancy. In fact an old picnic table bench would work fine.


I have been looking for ages. Garage sales, Craigslist, trash piles.

You wouldn't think it would be that hard.

Of course I am willing to pay practically nothing for it. Come on, an old tired bench that you have left out in the yard for years...you should pay me to take it away! Help me, help you. Got a bench you want to get rid of? Holler!

  1. It's not old or inexpensive, but perhaps it will go on sale...West Elm has a natural wood good looking bench seat.

  7. I know, but how can you tell yourself to stop looking? Impossible, right? Maybe Ann's bench will work, especially since you're in the same town.

    Good luck to you!! I expect a bench update soon!

  8. That is so funny...yes...you just want to help someone take a bench off their hands and find a happy place for it in your home. Really, are we reaching for the stars here?

    I do LOVE benches for coffee tables and for at least one side of a table because it says, "we have room for one more, come sit."
