{ Homegoods Bench Turned Living Room Coffee Table }

This week is moving right along around our little suburban cottage! I meant to have something ready for you guys on Monday, but to be honest we were busy the entire weekend & it felt great!! Our Michigan weather was perfect this weekend, so we got outside when we had down time & spruced up the front & back all day, and I may have spent wayyyyy too much money in the process! I wanted something fresh for our front porch area as we plan on selling soon! I also spotted the cutest little bench @homegoods while out shopping with my mom..I did an IG story { my IG -HERE } about 2 out of the 3 pieces I picked up, but kept this one on the down-low since I knew I wanted to blog it! Little back story we've been looking for a new coffee table that was sleek,yet wide enough to still be able to set a tray on & also move easily on our jute rug for when we want to put our feet up etc..We had the matching @ikea ottoman for awhile, but it was just soo bulky & didn't work for that space any longer & this table at one time too HERE ..Skip ahead to this weekend & I found the cutest green bench that I knew would work perfect for a coffee table & foot rest!!! My mom also liked the idea & when we went  to grab it seen it was on sale for under $35!! I snagged it up along with the other two pieces { blog post coming soon } . I didn't think Mark would like it, but he actually loved it & mentioned how much more room it gave us & the pibbs too! Come see this little conversion below!!!


I forgot I had this rustic leather tray in my decor room..It was a free find & fits so perfectly on the bench/table!! The coasters were a DIY  HERE if you're interested & the candles & flowers are from @michaels! The crock was a free find!




I love how cozy  fresh pops of green can make a space! Green is my favorite color & adding this new piece helps balance the chippy green stool I blogged HERE! You can see I loved this look, but needed something a bit bigger..Patients paid off in this case haha



I usually have these two pillows on the back of our sectional so the pups don't try to nest up there haha. They fit nicely under here so why not ha! These farmhouse stripe pillows are from @ikea for $4 each!!



What do you think of this little conversion from bench to sleek coffee table? I'm kind of in love with it & especially for the warmer summer months!  Let me know down below in the comments what you think!

Happy Tuesday, friends!
