Sofa Table + Benches | Craigslist Remix

In At Home by Michelle KowalskiLeave a Comment

I’m back at it again with another Craigslist Remix. Well, this started as a remix and then I decided I HAD to have these benches in my life, so I hurried to the moving sale after work and bought the set.

The Items

A Sofa Table and 2 Small Benches on Casters

What grabbed my attention?

I liked the strap details on the benches and the round casters. The sofa table was fine, but I was drawn to the benches.



Option 1:

Benches covered in off-white/light linen fabric with camel leather straps:


Option 2:

Benches covered in black and white striped fabric with camel leather straps:


Option 3:

Benches covered in black and white striped fabric with fuschia fabric straps:


and the winner is….

Option 2: Light linen + leather

I loved the look of the Katy Skelton Safari Bench Emily Henderson featured in her master bedroom reveal, but couldn’t swing the hefty price tag. I might try to sand and lighten up the wood a little bit, but for now, I like the contrast of the leather straps on the light fabric. I like the stripes + leather, but since I’m planning on doing large stripes on the cane barrel chairs that will be facing these benches I didn’t want the entry to get too stripey.

Check back next week for the final IRL reveal!


  • Do you think I picked the right option? or do you think these are hideous?
  • How do you style your sofa table? Right now, it’s just working as another place for George to perch and harass Freddie.
