DIY Southern Bench for Entry Way

Sometimes decorating can be a bit overwhelming. It isn’t too overwhelming if you just focus on one area at a time. For instance, I focused a corner in my kitchen that was missing something. We needed a little more seating and a bench would fit perfect. This southern style bench is perfect for an entryway or to fill a space that needs a little love in the decor department. This bench is actually in my kitchen and I couldn’t be happier. It really helps when we have company as well. You may be wondering where I found such a beauty. Let me just tell you, I looked high and low for something unique, ya know, something that wasn’t perfect in every way or made out of particle board. This bench is truly one of a kind because it was built by my husband as a birthday gift for my 30th.

I showed him a picture of something I sort of liked and he got busy sketching it out. He used pine to build the bench from the ground up and I absolutely love how it turned out. The stain we used on it was American Living that you can get at Lowes or Wal-Mart. I bought some pillow covers and the throw from Amazon and found the letter “B” at Hobby Lobby for $15. It’s actually decorated for Christmas here. The garland came from Joann’s when they were having a huge sell one year. The tree I actually found at Hobby Lobby as well for $5 during an after Christmas sell!

If you want these same pillow covers and the gray throw, you can find them on Amazon using the links below! This is exactly where I purchased all three from!
