Put her on the bench


If you are feeling like its been forever since I've posted or done a 
DIY....you are right.

Apologies all around, my only excuse is....it's summer!
I intend to soak up every minute of it.
My dear friend Linda gave me a bench last week.

That's right, she gave it to me...you know
the line, someone's trash is another person's treasure....
I've got the pics to prove it.


Here's the before...we pulled the old fabric off and
that's what they used for padding? Gosh Linda this thing
must be old.


And here's the after, cuz I know that's all you care about.



The deets:

Metallic spray paint $5
Fabric $7...JoAnn had a 60% off sale this past weekend
Foam $8....instead of searching for a paper coupon, I pulled one
up online on my smart phone and they scanned my phone, 40% off.
Did you know you can do that?

$20 buckeroos for a beautiful, new piece!

The moral of the story...bring me your junk and
I will make it nice and new!

But, I get to keep it, right?
