Dressing Up A Vintage Bench

When I think of a bench, I don’t think of using it as a bookcase. I mean, aren’t they for sitting and putting your shoes on? But this idea I saw from Dabito of Old Brand New is pretty cool. He picked this baby up from the Rose Bowl flea, and turned it into an amazing bookcase where it holds books, plants and some super cool collectibles. I love how he styled this little vignette with some unusual artwork and vintag-ey black/brown frames too. This is most definitely going into my inspiration files!

On another note, I don’t follow many photography blogs. But Old Brand New has been the one that I’ve always come back to. There’s just something about his perspective and composition that really grabs me. His styling skill is kinda amazing too! Go check out his blog and let me know what you think? You might even enjoy stalking his Instagram. :)
