This weekend we have been working on raking leaves and using our inner macho-ness with the chainsaw. If we weren't so exhausted it'd be fun. I also painted the kitchen, Cottage White from Behr, and recovered a bench that I purchased from Goodwill for $7.99. Not bad, right?
I removed the previous upholstery. The bench had been recovered about six different times. This was not a pretty job.
Please ignore all the boxes - they're driving me crazy!
Once the previous covers were removed, I used wood filling to fill in some of the leg embellishments, which were a bit out of date. I also added new batting.
I stapled the new fabric and maneuvered the fabric around the legs, stapling along the way. I still need to add the piping, but overall I am pleased with the way everything turned out. For now, it's at the end of our bed, but I will probably put it in the dining room when everything is unpacked. Here's to a very packed weekend and have a great Monday!
