Saw It, Wanted It, Took a Picture

While I was shopping for curtains I saw a lot of attractive things, especially at Home Goods.

Two identical benches -- $150 each.

I could definitely see this bench in a couple of places in the house:

A bench might look nice under the large painting in the living room.

An airy bench would look nice in the mudroom.
An airy bench would look better than the hope chest in the mudroom.

Or in the mudroom in place of the cedar chest.

I'm planning to build this bench.

I left without making a purchase. Whew, it was close.

What have you got your eye on to purchase?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. I’m not trying to replace the stuff that I’m eliminating. I want to consider everything so a $150 bench would have to be half that price in order for me to cart it home. Jo

  1. I’m labeling my response “Saw it on your blog, want it, waiting to see what you do with your bench, still salivating over those two benches from Home Goods and Home Goods is WAY too tempting.”
