I’m linking up with Tara for my very first Monday Made It post!
Today I wanted to share with you this little hope chest/bench that my husband and I bought at a used furniture shop for $75.
We hated the cover (obviously – it’s disgusting). Before purchasing we figured we should see just how simple or not simple this would be. It turns out the cushion is simply screwed to the inside.
I wanted to change the color of it, and we thought spray painting might be a total disaster. We decided to give it a go anyway. 🙂 We bought 4 bottles of white spray so that it would match the other furniture in our home.
While it dried, I picked out some fabric to cover it. It was actually very simple to do. I have become best friends with my staple gun that my dad bought me! I now feel like I can reupholster anything! (side not – turns out other reupholstery projects are quite difficult).
Anyway, after I finished the cushion, I decided that I liked it, but I wanted it to make more of a statement in our entryway. Don’t get me wrong, it was cute… just not exactly what I was hoping for.
