First, yes, it is a well-known fact that I do not have the patience for photography. But this particular set of images uniquely reflect the state of my life right now: I leave the house when it is still dark. I return home once it is dark. Thus: dark, yellow-y pictures. Yum.
But I digress. Kenny and I found this sweet upholstered bench at a local secondhand furniture store.
It fits pretty nicely at the end of our bed, don’tcha think?
The price was right at $60…more expensive than thrift store prices, but the stuff at this secondhand store is curated more nicely than a thrift store. So I understand the pricing. Plus, this bench had the upholsterer’s tag still on it (with a date of 11/2013) and is like-new.
In the above picture you can see the crazy cathedral ceilings and area above our closets. We’re planning a major renovation of this area to happen sometime in the next, oh, 20 or 30 years.
Here’s a closer picture of the bench. It’s actually a creamy-white/gray stripe with shiny silver nailheads.
Kenny and I have made a pact that we will not leave clothes/anything on the bench. Anyone want to bet how long that’ll last?
I would make an exception for a pillow or three, though. And a fluffy throw? Mmm. I can see it now.
