For awhile now I have been wanting to find a nice upholstered bench to place at our dining room table to add some color, fabric and more seating. Since we have such a small space and it is a living/dining combo I thought a comfy bench that could be pushed towards the table or the sitting area would be helpful. It has taken me awhile but while perusing my local Homegoods (a weekly habit of mine) I found this unassuming piece.
And it was on clearance since there was a stain, which didn't matter to me since I do not like this fabric. So it was only $55 - I love those little red stickers stuck over the already cheap prices.
And then it did this and I about fell over on the little old lady walking by.
So I brought it home and immediately took care of that nasty fabric. I know there was a better way to go about reupholstering it but to be honest I did not have the time to do it the right way....so I did it the quick way. I did take the time to remove all the hardware and separate the base from the top but that was as far as I went. And I even happened to have the fabric laying around and I think it adds a lot to the fabric already in our space.
So here is the finished product.
Here was the room before the bench redo.....
Now I just need to get some things up on the wall. Baby steps.
