Awesome Mid-Century Find

Been looking for a bench forever. Saw some coffee-table to end of bed-bench makeovers recently, so I took to stalking the local SA for coffee tables on the cheap.

Well I found this one yesterday-- 30.00, not bad for L.A.--geesh our thrift store are sooo expensive compared to some of you-alls out there!--, but its sturdy well made and nice clean lines. I thought I might paint it but now I'm thinking, no. I like the wood.

What do you think? Should I add a cushion to the top? I know sorry for the bad pics, my hallway is a mess! I also want to add--baskets? Bins? to the bottom to hold all the shoes and backpacks...


  1. What a great bench!! I have to say, I've noticed a huge price increase in thrift stores recently. I think they are catching on to us!

    Thank you for the support on my store, I love what you said about doing what you love. That is absolutely true. :-)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Love your blog and need to stop by more often....I have not had enough blog time lately...So glad that I stopped by tonight..Be sure and stop by main blog
    and witness a miracle.

  3. I love readding, and thanks for your artical. ........................................

  4. Great find. The basket idea would be perfect...and it's great piece with or without cushions. Makes me want to go shopping to see what I can find.

    I gave your blog a sunshine award this morning. :)

  5. That is an awesome find. I like the idea of a cushion and the baskets underneath. Can't wait to see how it turns out.


Thanks for stopping by!! I love your comments!
