My New Bench

My new breakfast room is almost finished. After searching for several months I found a wonderful nine foot long antique Belgian Table with an incredible iron base. The iron work is so interesting that I didn't want to hide the front of it with traditional chairs.
(I know the photo leaves a lot to be desired - taken on my cell phone)

So imagine my surprise when I saw this great bench at Wisteria and it was covered in a vintage grain sack like linen! The perfect size too!! So I ordered it!
It just arrived this morning and its perfect!!

I chose the red stripe versus the blue; but I really like them both!
Still waiting for my chandelier (Niermann Weeks) before the big reveal!
But wanted to share what I think is a wonderful find at a great price!
(and did I tell you I also had a 20% off coupon?)


  1. Can't wait to see it all! I would love to know where to find a fabulous table like that.

  2. I really like the bench & the table. The chandelier is a beautiful compliment as well.

  3. So pretty! I haven't browsed that site in a while...looks like I'm missing out!

    Enjoy the weekend!

  4. Don't you love it when a great plan comes together! Your table is Stunning! The bench is perfect (especially at 20% less!) I've always LOVED your NW chandelier- it's a beauty! Can't wait for the reveal!

  5. Wow!! Judging by the sneak peek of the table, bench, and chandelier, your dining room is going to be beautiful!!

    What a great idea to use a bench instead of chairs so the lovely table base won't be hidden.

    Can't wait to see your reveal!!

  13. That bench stopped me in. my. tracks. GORGEOUS! I can just picture it with the 9 foot table! I can't wait to see it all together! Show it off when it's ready!

  14. I can't wait to see it all. Don't you just love it when you find the perfect piece? We did that a year and a half ago when we added a breakfast room onto Linderhof.

  15. How lovely this is! Can hardly wait for the big reveal....don't leave us hanging for too long!

  16. I love the whole thing and what a wonder site. I got a little chuckle out of the potholders under the legs of the table. Such design. Can't wait for the big reveal.

  17. Gina, your bench is just beautiful (I love wisteria!) the table is fabulous (potholders and all hee!!!) - the chandelier is stunning! I can't wait to see it all together.
