He knew I was looking for a bench to put outside by the front door and this was just right. Paul thinks that it might be a fire hazard though with it being right next to the outlets. I think I'll keep it there for now, at least through Halloween so I can put my carved pumpkins on top. It would also look great in our entryway. Just add some pillows and a few baskets underneath, and it should be good to go. I may give it a bright coat of paint, but I actually like how the dents and wood grains give it character.
When I picked up the bench, I was drawn to these and decided to get them too.
The smaller one fits right inside the larger one. I wanted to use them as sort of a side table by our couch since we didn't have one there. So far, I like!
