X Bench Frenzy

I arrived home this evening with my family after a fabulous week at Disney with the kids. I managed to leave the magical land without any monogrammed rat ears or pixie dirt.   My mini TV didn't work on my airplane ride home so I had plenty of time to start brainstorming about all of my next house projects (even though EG has put the kibosh on spending any more money after Mickey dipped into our life savings this week--that measily rodent).  Ha, ok ok.  As bitter as I sound about the vacation, it was excellent and so nice to spend time with the family. 

Now, onto my next obsession for the house....

Tonight I started searching for X Benches for two locations in my house; my master bath and my mudroom.  (Continue below)

1 Essex from Layla Grayce | 2 Parker X Bench Serena and Lily | 3 Black Stripe Ballard Designs |   4 Hollywood Regency The Modern Historic Etsy  |  5 Pink Rigsby Shop Furbish | 6 Charleston Green Peacock Worlds Away | 7 Arteriors Tennyson Turquoise Linen Zinc Door | 8 Pershing Leather Ottoman Zinc Door | 9 X Bench One Kings Lane 

I love #1 the Essex Bench from Layla Grayce for my Master Bath and will keep that in mind.  But really, for a more immediate venture, I'm looking for X Benches for my mudroom.  Remember when I happened to score those two lamps from Home Goods that reminded me of Kelly Wearstler?  I randomly placed them in the mudroom when I got home...well, I actually love them so much in there that I've decided to style them into that room. 

Oh boy, I'm really backing into this post-eh?  Well, I plan to add a white lacquer console into the mudroom and add two x benches below it.  I'll do an olio board for ya'll soon. 

In the meantime, here are all of the kick ass benches I found during my search.  I happen to think #3 the Black Stripe from Ballard Designs would look awesome underneath the white console against the Meg Braff Wallpaper.    (Maybe a bench with solid black legs and the top just striped). 

This is my latest venture...I'm trying to do this on a dime so have some reasonable alternative options up my sleeve I'll share with you if I decide to opt for them! 

Oh, and BTW, I wish I had a place for that Charleston Green Peacock Worlds Away Bench!  LOVE that lime green frame. 

Ok loves, that's all for now.   More on my X Bench Frenzy, later!

Oh it's so good to be back home.

I need #6...and I don't have a place for it. When you came home from Disney, did you want to decorate in pastels?

I need 2 of them in my dining room and Im with you on Xbench envy! I saw an awesome one at HGoods yesterday, but just one, I need 2 matching. So glad you had a wonderful vacation. Those are great memories with the kids. Have a lovely Sunday.

I'm in such adoration of X-benches. I saw one blogger snagged up a PAIR of coral x-benches with white piping from Target for $46 dollars total. They were on clearance. I'm majorly jealous.
