Bench Redo

I love this little bench in my Guest Room.  It actually matches my Master Bed Iron Frame.  I have placed it in many parts of the house and it's been recovered more times than I can count.  
My original plans were to recover the bench in Burlap but those plans went out the window when I had trouble with the transfer onto the Burlap. 
Here is what it looked like before the makeover.
And here is what I found underneath the plaid.  I guess I like plaid!  You can see the Burlap on the left that I used.  Before the Burlap went on I covered the bench in a linen lining fabric that I had.  I didn't want anything showing thru the Burlap.  When the transfer didn't work out I just took the Burlap off and left the lining fabric on there and redid the transfer.  Here is the transfer that I used:
Or you can find it at the Graphics Fairy.    Recovering a bench is easy and only takes a little while.  For this bench I just unscrewed the padded top, took off the old fabric, cut the fabric to size with a few inches on each side leftover and stapled it on with a staple gun.  I would love to have a pro staple gun but I have it do it the hard way with a lot of muscle!  
(forgot to turn off the auto watermark on picassa)

Easy project with great results!  That's the way I like it.

Until Next Time

Looks great! I'm in the middle of a bench re-do. What transfer method did you use?
