About 6 weeks ago, I spotted this pillow while shopping with my Mom on her visit here. I had it in my head that it was a bench with a pillow on it. Later I realized it that was not so. It was just a pillow. It was way cooler in my head as a bench though! I visited the pillow online anyway and daydreamed about it. When I asked hubby if he would make me a bench he just laughed at me.
So I forced myself to forget the bench with the cool pillow.
Then one day I saw on a blog somewhere how someone made a tables out of wooden pallets. They were rustic, weathered, and well....cool. See them here.
My pillow stalking was on again. It wasn't available online anymore, but my local store still had one. ONE! And one was all I needed! It's like it was meant to be, right?
So yada yada yada...we made a bench! I love it! Here's the finished result.
We liked the wire legs on the tables they used, but they wouldn't be durable for sitting on. So we had to get creative with wood. We think we did ok.
I like the small shelves. Maybe store blankets in them. For now, books.
Oh, hubby was able to purchase a new heat treated pallet for $10. We only used part of it. Cut it to fit the size of the pillow which was 16x 40". Looks like hubby is the peach of the week!
