Continuing with the bedroom re-do:
My next project is the perfect bench.
Another KICK to the CURB find.
Driving my son to the train station one morning I spotted this bench left out for garbage pick- up. As my foot eased on the brake I heard, “Mom, No! I need to get to school.” I took off for the train station arriving at warp speed, thankfully no one else was around. My son already had the door open before the car came to a complete stop. He knew I was on a mission. Back the way I came and there sat my bench with the garbage truck just 3 houses away. It looks just right, so right that it should never be Kicked To The Curb!
Because I don’t sew, I had to get creative.
Two place mats, one table runner, one curtain tie back transforms this bench into the perfect relaxing spot.
I removed the old dated fabric. The padding was in good condition, so I simply wrapped the place mats over the padding. Stapled edges to back and my seats were done. Next I removed the back cushion which is adhered to a board. I used the old fabric as a pattern. Cut to size , it was easy to fit fabric over cushion adhering with glue gun. Once I screwed cushion back into place the cushion was secure.
