This is a project that I actually finished last month
during one of those many snowstorms that we had.
And boy, we have had way too many of them lately!
We still have about 6 inches of snow on the ground
and I am pretty much over it!
I can't wait for the real Spring to get here.
I found this sweet little bench at an Estate Sale last summer.
I was going to redo it and put it around the house somewhere
but Miss Beaux took a liking to it
so we redid it for her room.
Here is what it looked like when I found it.
It had been painted over many times but the details
were so charming.
The seat cover was dirty and the fabric was dated and pretty ugly.
When I took off the first cover
there was another even uglier
brown fabric underneath.
Oh, and a few spiders too!
I bought new foam at JoAnn's (without spiders)
and glued that onto the seat board.
Then I staple gunned batting around the foam
before I put the new fabric onto the seat.
I had this dusty pink velvet left over
from a client's pretty tapestry pillows a few years ago.
I painted the bench in Paris Grey and waxed it
with clear and dark wax.
I did a fair amount of distressing to retain the old charm.
The bench seat is still awaiting the final touch
of being permanently screwed into the bench
but it will happen eventually.
Once we tighten it down a lot of the bumps will disappear.
I love the way that it turned out
and it looks great with her Shabby Chic bedding.
Unfortunately, this is the most you will ever see
of Miss Beaux's room.
She is a teenager remember?
Until Next Time,
