Hello everyone! Sorry I've been m.i.a the past week. It's been crazy around here. But, some how I've managed to get a few projects done.
I am SO happy to say I am FINALLY done with this project!! It's been a long process...
Here's the before.
This is a bench to a vanity that belonged to my great-grandmother. I've had it for a long time! Apparently my great-grandmother was a junker too!! :) I've heard that she enjoyed dumpster diving hehe. I think it's so ironic that I got such a great piece from her. It took me awhile to figure out exactly how i wanted to fix it...so this is what i had at first...
It was going to be grey with black stripes, but that didn't work for me. So then i did this...
I wanted light green stripes that barely show up. In real life it looks that way but they seem to show up more in this pic. I wanted it to be like these Hint of Mint stripes over at Life in the Fun Lane. Her furniture is so crisp & clean...I love it.
And here is my finally product!
The top is covered with a deep green fabric i found at Hobby Lobby in a fabric bin for (gasp!) $4! I didn't put in dept instructions bc stuff like this is all over blogland!
This last picture makes me so giddy! Seriously, i did that! :)
So here's the prices:
Paint(all 6 coats)-Freeee
P.S. I forgot to mention I also have the vanity (which is absolutely beautiful) I can't wait to redo it...but right now i dont have any room left in this bedroom of mine so it will be a project for the future.
