DIY BENCH

I needed additional seating in front of my fireplace and when I saw the $10 tryta bench from ikea, I knew the size would be perfect.  So with some materials I had left over I whipped up this convenient bench that can easily be pulled around when company visits.

Remember this post, about this DIY? Well in the original post the dresser did not have hardware yet.  You can't really see the hardware in the image, but I choose Ribbon Ring Pulls.  I think that it looks substantial and gives the piece the importance it needed.

You can also see the lamp that I covered a how-to in this post.  When I purchased the lamp, I thought the Robin's egg blue was pretty, but didn't go in the room at all.  So I spray painted it a dark indigo blue that looks much richer.
