Benches Galore!

I'm in the process of doing a few small changes to my bedroom.  Remember when I said I
would be painting the bedroom furniture?  Well, my man has talked me out of it!
I am on a 2 week break from school and he told me he strictly wants me to rest, with no
projects looming over my head AND he really doesn't want me to paint the furniture!
So, I'm being a good wife and honoring his wishes.  However, I can update a few easy things.

#1 on the list is my bench at the foot of our bed.  I love, love, love our bench! Everyone needs
one.  But, the burgundy color from 1996 has got to go!!  So, I'm on the hunt for some
awesome fabric.  Here are some really inspiring photos to browse of seating at the
foot of a bed.

This is so romantic and beautiful!

Here is the burgundy bench in all her glory!  I'm thinking a nice burlap color, but not burlap!
That would be way too scratchy.  Wish me luck!



  1. Hi Erin,
    I think a feed grain sack or a look alike would be lovely, a nice muslin would work, you could paint on stripes if you wanted to.
    Your bedroom is beautiful and such a nice size.
    I love your inspiration photos.
    Hugs, Cindy

  2. Love your room and the bench. A fabulous linen would look wonderful in a burlap color. Can't wait to see what you do. Hugs, Marty

  3. I LOVE the 2nd to last photo! It was put on my blog today too!! Can't wait to see what you decide!!

  4. Your bench it going to look great updated in a fab new fabric. I just painted our bedroom furniture but my husband hasn't seen it yet. He'll be in for a surprise when he comes home Wednesday night and sees it for the first time. I didn't tell him I was going to paint it ;-).

  5. I used to have White Mattelesse bedding but it go too dingy looking so now its red! Have you looked at Ballard for fabric? A little cheetah at the end might be fun or even something vintage with red to coordinate with that pillow? I kinda like the burlap idea. I have the burlap fringe bedskirt in my bedroom and curtains in the living room and LOVE it. You will have to post pics with whatever you decide. How nice to be ordered to REST! I wish my husband would say that!

  6. superb bedrooms, a fifth from the top of my most beautiful. Can you install an automatic translator on the page? - I would be much easier to read:) Cheers and more, more pictures!


I love hearing from you!!!
