I mentioned before they are quite the DIYers. This bench started out as a maple twin bed.
Hard to believe isn't it?
The back is the headboard and the sides are the foot board cut in half.
He added a board for a seat . WaaLaa!
I had it for a while before I painted it black. I thought it would be perfect in the mud room, and it is .
I always wanted to make an upholstered seat for it , but what fabric to use ? Hmm...
Then on my first visit to the flip house, I found these
A pile of vintage drapes in what I will call Lemon & Lime.
Bad picture - Sorry - I really need to work on that !
Anyway... they were perfect !
Hubby doesn't even act surprised anymore when I get excited about things like this . He just picked them up ( cause I wouldn't touch them ) and brought them home.
The fabric was in excellent shape which is a miracle in itself considering they were in a pile in a disgusting room surrounded by more disgusting stuff! Just needed a good laundering.
Here is my finished project. I am SO in love with it !
Isn't she pretty ?
Close up .
Other side. Bad lighting and photography :(
A little Halloween Bling!
I'm just so happy I finally got this project crossed off my list. I am so happy with how she turned out , I don't know why I didn't get it done sooner !
Oh yea, it's called PROCRASTINATION !
I got a few more projects started too , can't wait to show you those soon!
