I will be doing a review of this bench from CSN stores! I actually received it in the mail today! I will be posting my review and pictures as soon as my husband builds it tonight!!! I'm putting this in an area we have between the kitchen and the den, right below where we hang our coats. I thought this would be a nice place to sit and put on shoes/boots. I'm also planning on putting some baskets on the bench or on shelves above it with gloves, hats, etc in the winter! My inspiration came from this months Pottery Barn catalog where there is a beautiful bench with a plaid coat hanging above it in an adorably cozy mudroom :) So far I'm very impressed with this company and can't believe how fast I received this item, I ordered it on the 8th and received it early this afternoon :) I suspect if not for the holiday, it would have arrived yesterday too. What a wonderfully fast company this is! I will keep you all informed on how this piece looks soon!
