Favorite Farmhouse Benches

Hi, sweet friends! The last few weeks I’ve been talking about the changes I recently made in our entryway (here and here), and I’ve gotten a lot of questions and comments about the little wooden bench that sits next to my front door. Remember this little sweetie?

As you may or may not remember, I actually made this bench from an old door we found in the basement of our farmhouse, and it is probably one of my most treasured pieces of furniture I have. Not only is it a piece of our home turned into a beautiful piece of furniture, but I also just love the panel details and the little bits of chippy white paint that’s left and the sweet curves on the sides that give it the feel of an old church pew. You can see how I made this bench here!

But if you don’t happen to have an old door laying around or don’t feel like going the DIY route, I’ve rounded up a list of my favorite farmhouse-style benches that would be perfect in an entryway! I have actually used benches like these all over our house… at the foot of a bed, at the dining room table or underneath a window, for example. Some of the bench options are tufted, some have backs, some are wood, some are metal, some have beautiful curves and details, and some are simple and stunning.  I can’t wait to hear which ones are your favorites! Happy shopping, my loves…
