I've been thinking about making a bench, no let me rephrase that, I thought about making a bench....but considering the amount of time it has taken me to cut wood for one wall (and a bit) in our mudroom, as well as a shelf and little bits and pieces like that, I gave up on that idea yesterday. Since then I have been debating between a vintage bench or a modern one like above(Atlas). I didn't think I'd find a vintage one, so I was getting ready to tell Alain that 280euros wasn't so expensive for a mudroom bench.... (he's back for Korea tonight last I heard)
Then today after picking Gaby up from school, I decided to pop into my local thrift shop, this place is amazing, especially since Christmas, I just keep finding things, even today I found an amazing bridge chair (photos to come) for 12 euros (Gaby has since, taken it and it's now her desk chair, this wasn't the plan, but she can keep it. I'm in a good mood because I found the ideal bench, and it will fit perfectly into the mudroom once finished.
A 1960's vintage school bench and it was a steal, priced like the chair( 12 euros).
I'm not going to paint it, just leave it as it is, minus the chewing gum still stuck underneath.
