Thrift Store Bench Makeover

While visiting my favorite thrift store I came across this little bench.  I wasn't quite sure where I would place it, but for 7.99 I figured "what the heck"!  After a little primer, paint, and distressing I have a new piece of furniture.  I was able to use leftover paint from a previous project and the fabric for the seat was leftover from kitchen curtains I made.  I smile every time I walk by my new bench!


  1. Hey, this is great! You should put it up on some link parties if you want to get it 'out there'. I've got a good list on my side bar if you want some clues of were to go!

    The CSI project is doing a Turquoise special link party at the moment that this could go in.

    Just thought I'd let you know. Feel free to ignore!!

  2. thank-you for the heads up! i have no idea how this blog stuff works! i can't seem to make my page right! thanks for following! hopefully i'll get it together soon!

  3. Hi Brandi - What a great find! I would have taken it for $7.99 too! Love your "after".

  5. Girl! I am a fool for any bench! Yours turned out fabulous!! I never know where to put them, but I collect them anyway ;)

  6. HUGE difference! Great work, my friend. Hey, you changed your blog name...what happened to my ugly house?
