Furniture Rehab #1


It's been a long time since I have done a "Before & After" to share with you all. This morning I went my local thrift store and found this bench hiding under an ugly bulldog gym bag. It took me three times to walk by it before I realized that the ugly bag was sitting on something.

Now, I have to admit, I would not have even considered this thing if it hadn't been for Kimba's post on her very similar project.


I am so thrilled with the result! I used outdoor fabric as I plan to use it for extra seating in our (in progress) newly decorated backyard. Eeek! I am in Luurve, it's just so yummy!


Anything you all have been working on? Please do share, I love to visit your blog full of creative ideas!! :)
