Bench makeover

Well, I did it again! I took so long in between posts, I have to work on that!  Needless to say, I finally finished my antique bench and I love the way it turned out.  I decided to paint it heirloom white instead of sanding and staining it.  The white paint made it brighter, fresher and it looks great with the fabric.  Tell me what you think, I'd love to here from you!

This is now….

This was before...

I love this brocade fabric

So for now this beautiful bench will go in my etsy shop for sale.

I've linked this post to:


  1. Beautiful job and I agree that the white makes it feel fresh and bright.

  2. This is a really nice makeover. Such a pretty stool now.

  3. I love it! I had a bench very similar to that and I painted it white; looks so much better. Funny, it had almost the same pink fabric, too :)

    Great job!

  4. Gorgeous makeover on your bench! Love the fabric you chose - perfect with the coat of paint! Thanks for sharing this at the party this week! :)

  5. Very pretty. It looks like a totally different piece! Love the fabric.

  6. AMAZING!!!!!! I love it, the fabric choice is perfect as is the decision to paint it white. So gorgeous!
