Small Bench and a Coffee Sack

The joy of this business comes from breathing new life into old, neglected pieces.  Some pieces bring more satisfaction because of where they started from.  


I can't remember where I found this bench.  I look at it and think, "surely I didn't pay for this!"  

But if you look past the filthy pink roses you'll see some pretty awesome legs!

So after dismantling the cushion, I painted those legs in ASCP Emperor's Silk.
One of these days I'll get the lighting on my photos figured out!

Last weekend I found a great burlap coffee sack with awesome black lettering - just the size for this bench.  So I recovered the cushion.


Sometimes anything you do is an improvement.

Too cute! I love the edgy end result. That is so funny, I think we all have things in our garage/storage, that make us wonder how on earth they arrived there in the first place!

What a huge change! I love the coffee sack, it's so rustic, but still so on-trend for the year.
