Bold Bench


While visiting the Goodwill today I found this sturdy, but sad bench ( it was new with tags but dirty) and I snagged it and brought it home.  
Before:

I had some fabric in my closet that I have been wanting to use on a project and this was the perfect piece.  First thing I did was to unscrew the leg frame and paint it with white chalk paint.  I then sealed and aged it with dark wax and hemp oil.  After measuring the bench I cut the fabric and staped it on and attached the legs.  Loving it! 



The green here is brighter in the picture then real life

I love the X legs! 










On sale now!
