When the husband is away, the wife….has to build stuff herself ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve wanted a bench in the entryway after redoing the stairs and I’m taking advantage of some time alone to get stuff done and pretend to be handy!

The bench was made out of the formerย stair treads from the old staircase.

With a screwdriver and some nails I put together this super simple bench. I painted the legs white and the top brown, a reoccurring theme in my house.

It’s not perfect, but it’s sturdy… I guess that’s what a gazillion screws will do for you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The size fits well in the entryway and I’m playing around with some ways to decorate it! Maybe some pillows and a couple pumpkins for fall? What would you put on it?

    Cute! Perfect spot for a bench. I like the idea of seasonal pillows on it
