Bench Makeover


Something a little different and certainly a first for me.  I have always wanted to have a go at reupholstering a piece of furniture but for some reason it has always scared me. 

At the weekend I just made the suggestion to my hubby about reupholstering this bench and no sooner had I said it and he started taking it apart!!! I was totally shocked!!! now there was no turning back (OK that’s a little bit dramatic he only took the top of the seat off the legs).

So here is the before.  Pretty boring don’t you think?


And here it is after, I am loving this fabric.


Off we went to Hancock's Fabric Store (yes I said we, I persuaded hubbie to come along, after all he had nothing better to do than to amuse me!!!)  Finding the right fabric was easy as soon as we saw it we new it was what we wanted, actually hubbie saw it first and decided that was the one he wanted, I was surprised at this as I didn’t think that was his style, wow after nearly 20 years of marriage he never ceases to surprise me, so I will let him take the credit for choosing the fabric.  So not to bore you here is the finished bench, please excuse the photos, the sun is shining today and I just cannot seem to get a good photo, I am not complaining though I am loving this sunny weather.

Decorated Eggs For Easter

Something different to share with you today.
I have been playing around with eggs!  Not real eggs, but those yucky plastic eggs that come in a multitude of different colours!
My eggs started off like this.

I painted the eggs white with primer spray paint, that was fun! you should of seen them flying all over the place from the pressure of the spray!  I had to paint them in stages to get a good even coverage, so patience was needed at this point, not my strong point when I am doing a project.  Then it was just a case of adding some scrapbook rub-ons,  Easy peasy, don’t you think.  I am sharing this over at Brambleberry Cottage
