I love to redo benches and I was happy to find this vintage one at the Santa Cruz Flea Market a few weeks ago.
The old finish was scuffed up and, as you can see, the seat cushion was pretty disgusting. The man I bought it from told me that the night before he had a dream that his old bench had become beautiful. Well, I suppose his dream was about to come true.
I removed the old fabric and cushion first and then painted the bench. I painted it with a gorgeous grayish-brown color that Nancy made by combining paints.
I bought new foam for the seat and I used some leftover Paris Script fabric, from another bench I fixed up, to recover the cushion.
I wish the man from the flea market could see his old, ugly bench now.
