Little Bench: Guest Remodel

01 August 2010

Over at Decor Chick she found a little bench and dressed it up with a little love.
I found this bench at the thrift store for $5.  Can you believe that??  I thought it was so adorable, but my husband, ummm notsomuch.  He seriously wanted to put it by the curb for trash pick up.  Shame on him!
And I’m sorry, this has to probably be one of the worst “before” photos in all of blogland, but it’s all I have.  (Oh and if you look outside the garage, see that fire hydrant?  Yes, that is IN our yard.  How dumb of a spot to put that right??  Our car has seen better days, trust me.)
And with a few coats of Heirloom White spray paint here she is…
I think it’s cute!  I still am not sure where it’s going to live in the house, but right now it’s up in the gameroom/playroom/office/craft room.  Uhh yea, doesn’t that name stress you out too?  I’m trying to work on that room now, but it’s difficult.  It’s very difficult to have one big room function as all of those things.
Anyway, here’s the table again.  I used an old pillow we had and sewed a case for it. Yes, SEWED!  Yippee!!  One day I’d like to have a real seat cushion but this is fine for now.  Bought a few new crystal knobs from Hobby Lobby and called it good.
So do you like our new bench?  I like her curves.  Maybe hubby will now also. ;)

It has a lot of character for a little bench 
don't you think?

So cute, what an interesting piece...hey if I might ask a question: I was given a chest from a smoking home....when I paint it will that get rid of the odor? Not sure I want to go through the process if the smell will still be there, thank you
