To sit or not to sit.
Benches ,benches ,as my dilemma continues with my dining room continues, I have great faith that the X back or Hampton chairs I ordered will be just what is needed to make me happy and update this space, but the table I have is long now but can be even longer with one more leaf, so I want to make the most of the available space for those rare occasions when we have dinner guests, I think we have had meals there 6 times in the last four years.........so a bench will fit the bill, allow plenty of kids to pile on , at least that is what I imagine, I sure wouldn't want to spend much time on a bench eating , but it looks cute. Maybe I will use the bench off to the side pile magazines, plates and baskets for table linens, but on occasion pull it up for additional seating, that is probably the best use.
I will pick up the simple bench to the in pine as it is $99.00 at IKEA, I will paint it, maybe add some details to spice it up a bit.
