It's official. I am finally going to start selling some of my projects. Reed and I made two benches and are going to sell them.
The first one is a custom made crackled green and white bench. It is repurposed out of antique head boards. The pillows were sewn to match the bench. The pillow edge has microfiber cording. The pillows have green, blue, brown and white colors in them in a contemporary floral design. The bench seat is made out of thick 2 inch boards. They are made to hold a lot of weight. Nothing worse than sitting on something and you feel like it's going to break. It's sturdy!The paint is white crackled with green and then antiqued to create a unique patina.
The black bench is repurposed from a vintage headboard. The seat is custom built with two inch thick boards. The black and white damask pillow was custom made to fit the bench and the ties are made from a microsuede black fabric. It makes a great back rest. The bench can fit two people, so it's kinda a little loveseat. The black is very pretty and the armrests are a thick two inches.
The benches were really fun to make and they turned out great. We wanted to let all our family and friends know first that we are going to do some building and recreating. If there is a custom project you would like to have done for yourself or your kids let us know, it is a lot cheaper to have something recreated instead of buying new. Plus, it is custom done and you won't see it anywhere else. It will be painted to your specifics and you won't find another one like it. It will definetely be one-of-a-kind. We are starting with these recreated benches and they sell from (high priced boutiques) $800 for large benches down to $200 for smaller ones. We are going to start selling our benches at $189 because if we don't have to put them in a boutique or consignment store then it will be cheaper for you. So, if you would like to buy one of these benches, leave a us a comment. If you want one but, a different color or look, let me know. I have two more ready to be made. So, all of you that love my black bench downstairs...I found similar wood to make another large black bench. So, if you are interested...let us know (you can leave a comment on the blog or you can call us if you know the number) I love recreating and building furniture, so this might be a fun way to be able to do it and not have a house with too much furniture. So, if you want to buy one of these two benches. Call or leave a comment.
