Like New!

The "ewww" factor has been erased. Here is my ugly duckling bench, made beautiful! I am happy with result, and even happier with the cost:
Bench: $1.00
Spray Paint: $4.00
Fabric: Free! (sample)
Total: $5.00 plus a little elbow grease

This piece tucks nicely under our coat rack and adds a shot of color (who doesn't love deep teal?) to our entry way.

  1. Turned out awesome! So did you use a ply wood for the seat that you threw out? What did you use to cushion it? Just wondering, you know me!

  2. Shelley,
    I kept the plywood piece, but threw out the fabric/cushion that was there. I didn't feel like cutting out a new piece to fit :)

  3. What kind of spray paint did you use? Did you have to prime it first?


I love hearing from you!
