Two In One: Benches with Storage

What do you do when you need a place to store clothing and somewhere to sit, but don’t have a lot of bedroom space available? Or maybe you have a smaller room that you’re looking to turn into a guest room, but can’t think how you’ll fit enough furniture to make it workable. When faced with this kind of decorating challenge, your best bet is to seek out multi-purpose furniture pieces.

Form meets function in rustic décor like the 4 Drawer Deacons Bench from the North Woods collection. At first glance, it appears to be a chest of drawers with a fancy rail around the top. But in reality, it can serve both as clothing storage and either a bench or a display area for small items. Bright, unique knotty pine logs edge the sides and make up the top rail. The top and drawer fronts are made up of two-inch-thick pieces of pine, all fastened together using both glue and screws. Dovetail construction in the drawers ensures durability, and epoxy-coated rollers glide smoothly for years of use.

German peeling and hand draw knifing techniques give any log furniture a one-of-a-kind look. You can preserve the sunny, attractive pine appeal of the North Woods 4 Drawer Deacons Bench with a clear finish, or deepen the color with an optional medium finish. Unfinished pine also makes for wonderful country décor, but the slightly soft nature of the wood may be better preserved with the stain of your choice. It’s up to you what you want to do to make the chest match other furniture and accessories in your home.

A child’s room could also benefit from this little chest and bench combination. Light, neutral furniture looks lovely in kids rooms and harmonizes with kid-friendly décor and colors. Plus the surface is a perfect place for kids to put all their favorite stuffed toys. No matter where you put the North Woods bench, you’ll get a lot of use out of it and enjoy a rugged beauty unique to log furniture.
