Hey everyone... so I've been working all weekend on getting things ready to go for Ryan's birthday coming up soon but I thought you might actually want to see something fun.
Remember how I'm addicted to redoing furniture lately?
Well one of my projects I wanted to do was transform this little table:
This used to be the table that our tv sat on in the back living room.
I got it at an antique store for around ten bucks.
But when I did this piece I put our tv on it.
So this was just hanging out.
And we need more seating.
Hence... the bench idea.
Now granted, not a traditional bench. A bench with a drawer and a little higher than most but
it was what was in my head. :)
So here goes...
I painted the base and drawer in antique white. I primed it and everything but the wood didn't like the spray paint very well.
I had to cover up my drips well. :/
Then basically I just glazed that bottom portion.
Sorry I didn't take pictures for the next part but we were inside and it was dark :)
Me and my sister grabbed the little sucker and put a piece of foam on it.
I had to buy a piece and cut it since it was such a weird shaped top.
Then I took my beautiful fabric and stapled it up under the tabletop. It was interesting going around those little legs but it did.
Yes, it did.
Didn't it turn out beautiful?
I wish I had used a thicker piece of foam but, hey, it works.
I figure we can either use it to sit on when we need extra seating but it's firm enough still to put a trap on with some fun accessories :)
It adds color to my back living room... which I'm slowly starting to love.
I love having the drawer on it.
One more time... see how amazing the difference is with a little color?
It stands out.
I love it.
Hope you do too :)
