The Bench

If you have played sports or have kids that play sports, you know the bench has a lot of meaning.  You come off the bench if you get to play, you may get benched if you are in trouble, you may sit the bench.  We are in the heart of basketball season and some games, because I am a  people watcher, I spend as much time watching the bench as I do the game.  I like watching the coach's interaction with the kids, the players interacting with each other, the hierarchy as to where kids sit on the bench.  I watch and pray for those kids who may not get in, and pray for those who are playing and for the coaches.  Here is a picture of my son's coach talking to the team at the bench recently.  My kid is the tall one on the left.

Now what does this have to do with today's post?  Nothing really, a girl can be random right?  In my defense, we have been to four games in a week and I am hoping to get a bench built tomorrow--there is a connection, right?  Benches are not only important in games, but are great versatile pieces in the home--they work in entries, kitchen tables, at the end of a bed, on a front porch, as coffee tables.  I am not sure what type of bench I will be making, I will show you when it comes to me ;), but until then here are are some past benches I have built if you need some bench inspiration.

When you create a fun bench, being benched is definitely a good thing!  Happy sitting!

  2. Love all of your benches Becky! I'm suppose to be making a headboard bench today, but it's sooo cold. I don't have enough lumber, do NOT want to go to the home depot. :(
