Nowadays, this little bench lends itself to new uses. Like a bench by the door to put on shoes. Or a kid's bedroom where they can sit on it and.... text (ironic, huh?) Or they cover it with clothes they try on, decide not to wear and ultimately put in the dirty clothes pile.
I spray painted this after taking off the wooden pieces with a screw driver. And it took way more spray paint than you would think because of those round tube surfaces. It required all of the partial can I had on a hand, a trip to the store, and another can to finish it.
Then with the cushions, I used a little stack of fabric book samples to make a patchwork cover. That took about as much time as the trip to the store. Obviously, it would be simpler with a single piece of fabric to cover the seat and arm-rest, but I am trying to use up what I have on hand. Charleigh really like the part when I stapled the covers on. She shot a couple of the staples into the seat for her contribution to the project.
