Too often we turn to IKEA whenever in need of new furniture. Some of us go to flea markets and thrift stores in hopes of finding something different and affordable. Rarely we look into custom pieces of furniture as the solution to our needs. We stumbled upon Able And Baker's blog and eventually found our way to their Etsy shop. The maple storage bench is what brought us here. We like the simple design and versatility. It could be used in any room. It offers storage, extra seating, and additional work surface.
The handles make it easy to move and you can order it with front panels, if you prefer to keep things out of site. We would love to see it in different colors as an option, but the maple finish would work great in our home.
Also check out the LP Room Divide that holds 60 12" records. It is such a great idea. We are always looking through old records in hopes of finding some amazing cover art. This is a perfect way to display the most treasured ones in your collection. We could see it becoming the main focal point in any room.
Visit Able + Baker Etsy shop for more products and details. They are located in the East Bay. For those of you that live in the Bay Area it would eliminate shipping charges.
