Remember that housewares swap I talked about last week? Here’s one of the projects that I had mentioned. It’s complete! It only took me two days to complete. I would’ve finished it sooner, but napping & cuddles took precedence.
This thing was UGLY. Honestly, if I had seen this in a thrift store I wouldn’t have given it a second glance, but for some reason I saw the hidden beauty in it at the swap party. All it took to spruce up this chair was some spray paint, padding, a zipper & just over a quarter of a yard of fabric.
I just so happen to have some extra padding from a random project I did a while back, so I added that to the cushion before covering it. GOOD IDEA. I’m glad I did it. The little bench is much more comfortable now. I also think it looks better to have a more substantial cushion on there anyway.
I thought this bench/stool/chair thingy would be perfect for Chris’s “guitar corner” in our bedroom, but I’m not so sure he really digs it. He’d much rather practice on an old school chair that’s cool, but hardly matches the decor of the bedroom. I’m hoping he’ll have a change of heart now that the thing is complete.
What do you think? Would you sit on it now?
