A Deacon Bench And A Chevron Rug

August 3, 2013

Hi Friends, the deacon's bench finally has a spot in our home.  There is a small vestibule when you first enter then you walk right into our living room. This is where I placed the bench.  
It's a great spot for taking off and putting on shoes.

This is the bench I purchased at a yard sale a few months ago. 
 I am thinking of painting it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I  used a clam basket filled with clamshells that I found on the beach, hydrangeas from my garden, and a pillow that I purchased online from Decor Steals.  One of my favorite places to buy accessories.


I love the saying on the pillow.  





I placed a chevron rug under the bench.   Purchased at Home Goods.
I painted and stained the stool from the estate sale using vinegar and steel wool. 




I love the rays of sunshine that steam through the windows.


So does this little guy.



And this big girl.
 Waiting for her morning walk

The pillowcase I purchased at White Flower Farm House.
A quaint shop on the North Fork of Eastern Long Island.   







Enjoy your weekend!
