It's cedar on the inside and a very sturdy piece of furniture. But the oak wood on the outside isn't my thang.
Brian wanted to put it on the curb, but I just couldn't let it go.
|I got a lil slap happy and started painting BEFORE I got a good before pic. Sorry.|
I bought the paint & primer from Home Depot. There was NO WAY I was sanding this!!
I don't have a THANG for oak...but I have a BIG THANG for houndstooth. I LOOOVVVEEESSS IT!
I got 2 yards of some houndstooth fabric for $10 at JoAnn's. Stapled some more...
This was the space before...
Can you tell I painted the front hall as well?? I'll blog about that a lil later though.
I need a smaller, more colorful pillow to put in front of the black pillows. Something that makes it POP!
Well thats my bench. We love it, on a normal basis, we throw our shoes in here when company is coming over... but I accidentally locked the keys inside the chest. Oops.
I LOOOVE comments almost as much as I LOOOVE houndstooth, hint hint...
Oh, and I was just informed by my best friend that she reads everyone of my blog posts but she has yet to leave a comment or become a follower. Shame on you! (pointing my finger in the air)
I've posted my project here, check out some other fantastic projects by others and get inspired!
