I scored on this bench months ago at a garage sale for $5.00. I made it over once to go at the foot of my guestroom bed, but since I decided to put up wallpaper in there, I had to change it. I took the old one apart and simply repainted it and changed the fabric. This was another fun trash to treasure that I can do over and over again!
Time: 30-40 Minutes (not including drying time)
Here is the bench. You can use any type of wood bench. Garage sales and thrift stores are perfect places to find a great one. This one was a little beat up, but it was worth the five bucks. I didn’t mind that the top is a little beat up because I will be covering it anyway.
I painted it gray to match my guest room. It’s also a nice neutral color In case I decided to move it. I painted the bottom and sides and didn’t bother to paint the top.
Once the paint dried, I measured and cut my fabric. I laid it upside down, followed by the high density foam in the middle and the upside bench on top.
I worked my way around the bench and stapled the fabric to the wood.
Here is the after.
