So back in this post, I mentioned a few things that I was still working on for our front room. One of the things I mentioned was that I wanted to get rid of those two ottomans and get a bench as a coffee table. I had my eye on the Benchwright bench from Pottery Barn, but obviously there's no chance I'm going to spend that kind of money on it.
Enter: my husband
Last weekend he had an extra day off work, so he just whipped this up. We literally saved hundreds off of the Pottery Barn version and I just love the way that i turned out. I'm still undetermined about the bar across the bottom - I may like it better without? If we do keep the bar, though, it's going to get a little bit of paint to darken it up a bit. What do you think? Keep the metal bar across the bottom?
So here it is: their version and our version:
Thanks for all your work, honey! I absolutely love it!
