a simple chippy white bench



A few weeks ago I wrote about my new auction find here.


I absolutely love its chippy white worn look and it is working wonderfully next to my bed, but I knew I also wanted something new at the foot of my bed. I had an old milk stool, which I love, but I wanted something  that has a worn white look.

So a couple of weeks ago when I was at the same auction where I found my table I saw this. 


It was definitely love at first sight and I was hoping I could get it for a reasonable price. I did. Fifteen dollars. Hooray!!

So I brought it home and with just a little cleaning up it was ready for the end of my bed.


It's perfect. Oh and I know some of you have asked about the quilt. I'll share that and the rug in some future posts. They were also thrifting finds.

Another simple find for a simple and serene life.

  11. I love your new bench! It's the perfect shade of white with just the right amount of chippy paint. Looks great at the foot of your bed. That's a piece you could use anywhere!

    1. I know. That's one of the reasons I love it. I can move it around if I want when I someday get moved back into my own space.

    It reminds be of my Grandma's caned seat kitchen chairs!

    1. When I was growing up my grandfather had a cane backed rocking chair. I used to stick my finger through the holes and tickle his back. It always made us both laugh. :)

  16. Previously when you said you purchased a bedside table I knew what it would look like before I got to the picture. It was exactly what I had envisioned. Now this table at the end of your bed is the perfect height. Well done, Laura!
