Where Do I Put This?

Yesterday, me & my staple gun finished the ottoman above. Today, I still can’t figure out where to put it. The thing about Benches & Ottomans that is that they’re some of the hardest working furniture pieces in your house. They’re the utility players of Team Chez Vous. They’re versatile enough to be perched just about anywhere, be functional, and to look great doing it. For instance, you could put em…

  • Why can’t I see all those yummy pictures???
    I love your bench!!
    And I love those framed maps in the Grenier foyer!

  • Firstly, I would say this bench probably looks perfect in MY bedroom, at the foot of MY bed. Secondly, are you leaning towards putting it at the foot of your bed or somewhere aylse?

    I love it, I love it, I love it. I had dreams about it last night.

  • What fantastic fabric. I’d vote the entryway or foot of the bed! Now that that’s settled, please go find another similar diamond in the rough and make one for me. πŸ˜‰

  • LOVE your bench! I’ve got a pair of benches that have been moving from room to room. Right now, one is at the foot of the bed in the guest room and the other is in a hallway. That’s the great thing about these types of benches – they’re so versatile. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. It’s nice to discover yours!
