Reupholstered Bench

After seeing lots of blogs with cute “redos” and upholstery updates I have been wanting to give it a try. I found this old bench online for only $15 bucks! (KSL – another version of Craigslist here in Utah) and redid it.

The old (picture from KSL seller)...

I first painted the legs of the bench, Rustoleum's Heirloom White. Then I reupholstered the bench, added a cording trim around it, and tufted the seat.

And the new...

Total cost – $43

$15 (Bench – KSL)
$7 (Brown Fabric Remnant)
$5 (Button Covers and supplies for Tufting)
$3 (Cord Piping)
$5 (Staples)
$2 (Upholstery tacks)
$6 (spray paint for legs)

I love how it turned out! This bench will be positioned at the foot of our guest bed. The room is currently receiving a "makeover", I can't wait to show you the end result of it all!

I LOVE it! Thanks for the inspiration. I think I want to do something like this in our front room. We've been at a loss for what furniture pieces to put in there.
