my inner skater girl is so happy right now... wink. I should clarify I'm not a skateboarder, I attempted it once and lets just say my ankles narrowly escaped a sprain and my dignity was more than a little bruised #clumsyforlife

a skateboard bench on the other hand- pure delight! super cool and minus the danger of spending the night in A&E..





this table bench comes from SWENYO -based in the US they have a slick little selection of quirky homewares. when I saw this skurniture bench it was love at first sight - just look at those hairpin legs, gah, be mine.

I know the majority of my readers are US based so you guys won't have custom duties but for us here in the UK you will have about £28 to pay for this item so bear that in mind.. the bench comes in natural or black and you can have white, black or red legs.

you can also buy the legs separately- something I was considering as they'd be perfect for a coffee table I'm making...




I think what really sold me on it was it's versatility though-  I could use it as a side table, a shoe display, a seat even? I still haven't finalised where it will live permanently although I'm thinking it would be great as a side table for us in the living room.

if you see anything that tickles your pickle on SWENYO you can use code BURK15 to get 15% off until sept 30th, they have some lovely homewares so consider yourself warned!

back soon

    1. I might buy the legs seperately to make another table- if you have a skateboard you can do the same! :) xx

  3. I too had a skateboard (I thought I was so cool) but had to give it up as I just couldn't master any cool tricks :( I much prefer the look of it here opposed to me attempting to balance on it LOL x
