Rush Foot bench

When I decorate, I never really know what the end result is going to be. This is because I am a thrift store, sales price, and yard sale decorator. This means that I have to find something before I decide I need it. I hate to get a specific item in my mind and then feel like I have to have that exact thing when I know that I can’t afford it. That practice breeds too much discontentment in my life. And so, the way I combat that is by using magazines and catalogs simply as inspiration and if I find something at a low price that will help me work to the end of that inspiration, I buy it. When I was putting the guest room together, I knew wanted a nice little foot bench to go at the foot of the bed.

Since one of the nightstands, the dresser, and the chair in the guest bedroom are all dark wood, a light and air sort of bench is what i was looking for. I found some online and at some retail stores but just could not bring myself to pay the retail price. Instead of paying the price, I made a foot bench out of an old coffee table and was satisfied.

I walked into goodwill one day to do my normal morning run and noticed this little rush cane foot bench. I walked past it a few times knowing that I liked it but I could not think of what to do with it. I now have a new rule that i will not buy anything at goodwill unless I know for sure what I am going to do with it. After walking about a few times, I remembered the guest bedroom. The room already had a little bench in there that I had made from a small coffee table and so I had forgotten that I still wanted a lighter and airy-er bench and this one was perfect. I pay $10 for it and brought it home, and gave it a thorough cleaning. Now it sits at the foot of the bed.

    1. Thank you Laura! They’re so versatile and useful! I’ve even used them as a coffee table before. Hey, thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. Oh I would have not had a problem deciding what to do with this. Looks great just where you have it! By the way I now have the same rule about my finds too. No more I’ll decide what to do with it laters….unless….Joining you on From my Front Porch to Yours

    1. Well you have to you know! Goodwill and other thrifts stores are highly dangerous. you think since you’re only spending a few bucks here and there it won’t add to much but that is sure a lie…I’m learning! Thank you for stopping by Mary.
