More X-Bench Goodness…..

Shannon Berrey of Shannon Berrey Designs sent me a quick note detailing how she used the same x-benches from Sears that I recently recovered for my bedroom.  However, Shannon took her redesign of the x-benches into a completely different direction by painting the base and sewing slip covers.  The benches were part of a showcase room she did and all I can say is WOW!

Shannon Berrey's Cashiers' Showcase Room

I love the green color Shannon chose for the base of the benches along with the fun striped fabric of the slip covers.  The benches really anchor what is a fun, contemporary and simply awesome little girl/tween’s room.   The room has it all from pattern, texture to personalization!  If I had a daughter, this would be close to the room I would want to give her.

But what I love more is that this simple bench from Sears/Kmart has been re-interpreted by myself and three other bloggers/designers in very different ways.  It just emphasizes that investing in a piece of furniture with good lines can be the basis for various design jumping points.  If you have used this x-bench in your home decorating projects, please send me a pic!  I would love to see how we all are using it in our own unique and fun ways!
