Maybe I’m crazy for wanting one of these tandem benches, but they are so cool!
Used in waiting rooms, airports and bowling alleys, these benches were a dime a dozen back in the day. Now, they can make for an awesome statement piece in your home.
Our laundry room off the garage has become our catch-all place for, well everything. It’s where we keep about 10 pairs of shoes, three jackets apiece, diaper bags, purses, random items needing a home (like our old kitchen table), and of course, heaps and heaps of laundry.
I’d like to think that if we put a little effort into making it more functional, it might end up staying a little tidier. I’d love to hang some sleek coat hooks on the back wall. There’s a coat closet right when we walk in, but somehow coats don’t end up in there.
And a place to sit and put on shoes and coats would be amazing. Right now I sit Logan on the dryer while I try to wrestle him into his outerwear. Not exactly ideal.
But… if you added a little shelf there like one of the those benches pictured above? Perfection!
