Best Of Etsy: 25 Amazing Benches!

This weekend we finally moved in! Yippee!

As soon as the last box was unpacked, my frenzied mind went straight to entryway benches. My kingdom for a good entryway bench! We have a long entry wall just begging for a nice bench you can sit at to pull your boots off. I haven’t decided yet whether I want it upholstered or bare, so the first thing I did was check Etsy.

Did you know you can find some pretty amazing handmade furniture on Etsy? As well as some pretty fantastic antiques? It’s true!

After the jump, it’s a collection of the best benches of Etsy, according to moi. This is pretty exciting stuff you know!
