Bench Redo

I recently picked up this bench for just $5 at a yard saleI know, it's pretty 1980's with the orangy oak and the blue fabric. They even used blue tape to repair a hole in the upholstery...
But with a little paint and some fabric I picked up at another yard sale (and the help of my favorite upholstery guy) here's my new bench...
I love the curved legs now that they're black
I'm not sure where this one will go (I'm sure it will stay right where it is until after the wedding) but I really love the way it turned out. Let me know what you think and don't forget to check back Wednesday for the BIG challenge update! Love, Kelly.


  1. I LOVE IT! SO PRETTY NOW! I have a question.... when you redo furniture what kind of paint do you use? I find that sray paint isnt as easy as it seems like it should. How many coats do you typically put on something like this?

  2. It looks great! Amazing how a little paint and fabric can totally change the look of something!
