Do you ever drive up to a garage sale and spot something.... even before the car is in park, that you know you have to have? I want that... I need that... Can I afford that??? There's a lady looking at it... will I have to knock her over to get it?? Slowly, ever so slowly I approach "the bench". I can't act as though I want it or she might take it. I casually look down and spot the price... $5!!! I WANT IT... I NEED IT... WAHOO... I CAN AFFORD IT!!!! Casually, so as not to alert those around, I removed the price tag, hand it to the seller, and say, "I'll take the bench." I then take a little stroll around - the whole time singing a little happy song... "it's mine... it's mine... it's alllllll mine!!" Do I feel bad when that same lady returns to the bench and says, "I thought I saw a tag on there for $5." To which the seller replied, "yes, there was a tag on it, but another lady just bought it." Oh my, I feel so bad... NOT!!! You snooze you loose!!! Is that bad of me?? Of course I'm not quite so giddy when I'M the one that "snoozes" just a bit too long!!!
Anyhoo... this is the sweet little bench I was lucky enough to get. I knew that space was limited in my bedroom, so I couldn't have a large bench. I figured that I would spray paint the base white, and recover it with the same fabric as the chair I had already finished for the bedroom. It was in SUPER condition.
(I already had the fabric and cording to match this chair, so $5 was the total cost!)
Unbelievable!! I got out my roll of batting, my fabric, cording, scissors, screwdriver, and staple gun and I was ready to go!
There will be more pictures coming of the entire bedroom makeover, just trying to get everything done before posting.
