This is a cute table that I painted, lightly distressed, glazed (to give it an antiqued effect) and finished off with a coat of poly. I am kicking myself for not taking a before picture... I will from now on!
A few of the pieces that I will build-to-sell is this knock-off Samantha Entryway Bench by Pottery Barn. We built it originally, 3 years ago, to go at the top of a stairway landing, but use it at our new house in front of our breakfast nook window for seating at our table. We store the kids coloring books and accessories and place mats under it, so that's why you can see some stuff peaking out of the top of the baskets! :D It would look fantastic in an entryway (naturally), at the foot of a bed (as pictured below) or as a bench at a kitchen table (like we have it). The options are endless.
Following are also some pictures from the PB website of their bench... can you tell the difference? The dimensions are the same, though ours is made from pine, and theirs from poplar and MDF. You can customize your paint color and distressing level. (I still need to distress and touch up a few spots on mine! Actually, I wish I would have painted mine white, which I just may still do... hmm)
