Are you getting sick of my furniture posts yet?
I think my hubby is going to send me to "rehab" rehab. I just can't help myself! I love finding something old and making it pretty again.
A while back, I was inspired by someone's post about fancying up an old gossip bench. I wish I could remember who it was so that I could give them credit. If anyone remembers who it was, let me know.
Anyway, I found this old gosssip/telephone bench at an antique store and wanted to try something similar. I just loved how this old piece looked. It was really study and I love the detailing on the side.
I'm sure lots of people would say, "DON'T DO IT!" It really is pretty just the way it is but I wanted to do something totally different with it.
I like the idea of using an unexpected color so I went with a bright red, almost laquer finish. The fabric is the same fabric I used on the yellow stool here. I got some good mileage out of 1 yard of fabric!Now I just need to find a place to put it!
