Telephone Bench Redo

Ok so I promised some pictures of the little telephone bench I found this weekend in my weekly round-up.
Here it is,


And.... After

Isn't it cute.  I think this would be perfect in an entryway.  There's a place to drop your mail and keys, and sit down to put on your shoes!  Perrrrrrrfect!

I am still trying to get my patio redo together, but I seem to keep getting pulled away.  Don't worry though it's on the way. : )


  1. Very cute! I'd love to have one of those telephone thingies!

  2. I know right!! I bought that little guy for a whole $5.00. No one really needs a "telephone" bench in the age of cell phones. But, I thought it could be repurposed into an entryway bench very nicely! : )

  3. And...Great for working on a Laptop too! : )

  4. I stumbled upon someone else also remaking one of these, but they decided to paint it white as well as put in new fabric. I think they look awesome either way :) I love the fabric you chose! :)

  5. I toyed with the idea of painting it. But, I would have gone with a soft pale green. I thought that would look nice against the yellow and be a bit different. Once I put the fabric on I liked how the yellow pulled out the yellow tones in the wood. Kinda hard to see in that pic. looks kinda grainy. I will be getting a new camera soon! : )
