Spindle Bench

Our spindle bench has been relocated to our bedroom. It had been in the living room but was quickly replaced by the baby swing and bouncy chairs.


I love the combined textures of the wood spindles, the crochet quilt and the rush seat. The pillow is made of burlap and cotton.

Oh I love that! I inherited an antique spindle crib and am thinking maybe I cut one of the sides off and use it as a bench/mini daybed?! I hate to alter any heirlooms but at least it would get it out of the storage space and bring it back in to the family life. What do you think??

HA! My husband wants a bench at the foot of our bed and I keep holding off because I KNOW I would stub my toes at night. Just not ready for the pain..

It is beautiful- I've always loved pieces with turned legs and spindles like this. Looks great at the foot of your bed!

It look fabulous there!

I must say, I have like antique furniture for quite a few years now. However I never took a double look at some of the heavy, dark, ornate furniture until I came across your blog. I absolutely love how you can take an Eastlake piece and make it work in such a bright, sunny, farmhouse home! I've always liked contrast of light and dark and think your home is gorgeous.

If I had a "true front porch" (mine was enclosed many years ago) I would be searching for an Eastlake settee to put on it!

What a perfect spot for the spindle bench. It's a wonderful piece that would look good anywhere ~ very unusual. I'd have a bench in every room of our house if I could. They are perfect for so many things. We have one at the end of our bed with an extra quilt. Of course other things end up there too, so I'm forever moving things off to their proper home. LOL
Thanks for sharing. It's lovely. Love that bed too. ~ Sarah

I just love it. I've never seen a bench like it. It goes well with your bed, and I'm glad nobody has stubbed a toe.

Your spindle bench has found a very nice new setting.
Furniture tends to migrate from room to room as children grow - this is just the start!

I love your turned bed and the spindle bench. I love the white bedding. I had a queen sized bed and it was the pencil post bed from Ethan Allen. My extremely talented hubs made it, but now we have a king sized bed and don't have a frame for it. I miss my beautiful black poster bed. I want another pencil post bed, but hubs is not sure he wants to do the exact same bed.

Cheryl said...

what a lovely piece. love all the details on the bench. It looks right at home there at the foot of your bed.
Oh, by the way, loved the pic of the sweet feet in the pink baby booties. I am behind reading up on blogs and just saw that post recently. How adoreable.

Barb said...

It is rally a piece of historical art....Would love it if it could talk and tell us where, who with, and how it has spent its life. It would be fascinating!!!

Bravo on getting this. Looks great in its place.

Dianne said...

That bench would be beautiful anywhere. I'd love a look at "real life" in your living room.

Your images always look so clean and perfectly placed. I love stopping by your blog for inspiration to start my day!

I would love for you to stop by my blog. My two sisters and I write about the charm of small town life and the fun adventures we go on in neighboring historical towns.

Your spindle bench looks lovely at the foot of the bed. I found you over at Polohouse and I had to come over and take a peek.
Hugs, Cindy

Bet you won't want to move it back, it's nice to have something at the foot of the bed. Just glanced at the pink booties from your last post, my daughter had some very similiar. So darn cute!!!

VictoriaArt said...

It looks wonderful, as it has always been there! I guess this is how it goes. Eventually the baby gear will be replaced with something really beautiful in your living room.
They use these things so short and then off they go!!!!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

That bench is awesome. It really is so pretty.

Terri said...

That's a gorgeous bench! It looks wonderful in the bedroom.

Holt House said...

Beautiful old house, I love your decorating style, using antiques but with a clean, fresh, uncluttered palette!

Kirsty papadopulos@comcast.net said...

I love your style, thank you for sharing your house and part of your life and heart, congratulations on your babies. I was wondering where you found your fabulous 4-poster bed?? I am in seattle and feel like it is so difficult to find great antiques in the NW. You inspire me.
