This bench was a bit of a scary undertaking. I honestly wasn't sure I would be able to figure out how to weave the top and if it would even work. GUYS, it turned out PERFECT. I originally got the idea when I was designing the dining room for the Brightness Builds project. I wanted to help give them more seating because they have a very large family that comes to visit often. But I wanted it to be pretty of course and this EXCEEDED my expectations! Its SO PRETTY.
