 Wooden Grey Garden Bench

This weekend I had the fun opportunity to go shopping for Mother’s Day at Cost Plus World Market! I have never been there before and I was totally missing out! There are so many fun things for your home and garden – and even little treats from other countries! I loved all the colors and designs of the yard and home décor! It was really bright and fun yet not too overdone!

As I was walking around deciding what to buy(there are so many fun things it was really hard!) – I narrowed it down to something fun for my yard/porch – We have been working outside and I thought it would be fun to buy some things to add color to my porch – I was thinking flower pots or a fun rug for my deck when I spotted this fun little grey wooden garden bench! I have wanted a cute and fun little bench for a while so this was perfect! I had the nice guys at the Market load it up into my car and drove it home. Yesterday for Mother’s Day, my sweet husband put it all together for me and we set it on the porch!

Cute right? Don’t you just love the criss-cross on the back? I do!! But as cute as it is – it got a whole lot cuter when I added the fun cushion and pillows that I also bought – remember… I was going for color!!



I love the fun pattern on the cushion – and the matching pillows!

After we got it all set up, I just sat on it – and sat and sat and sat and just enjoyed it! It is in a great location so I can sit and read or check email while my kids play and still keep an eye on them as they ride their bikes up and down the driveway. So if you want to come and visit me – you should! We can drink ice cold drinks and chit-chat while we enjoy my little bench!

If you love World Market too – head on over and like their Facebook page! When they reach 500,000 followers they are giving away 2 $50 Gift Cards! They also have a really fun sweepstakes going on now! The grand prize is a trip for 2 to Rio de Janeiro and they are giving away a $100 gift card to CPWM to a Facebook fan everyday. Awesome!! You can also follow them on Twitter!

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Cost Plus World Market, but all my opinions are my own.

Have a great week!!!
