Butterfly Bench


Last time I visited my sister in Southern California, I found this vanity bench at a yard sale for a few dollars.  It was one of those days when I did not find anything all day until I snatched up this petite bench at the last sale of the day. 

I forgot to take a before picture, but with a little luck, I found a picture of the exact bench on a google image search. 


I painted the legs with Aubusson Blue Chalk Paint and applied clear and dark wax over the paint. 


I added a double layer of new foam for the seat cushion and upholstered it with linen, butterfly fabric.

My local fabric shop just got this fabric in stock and I love the butterflies paired with fancy scripts and stripes.

I love the fabric. Any hope I could find it somewhere too?

I love it! It makes me wish I hadn't given my vanity and bench to my mom, because that look would have totally worked with it!!!

BTW, I'm hosting my first Linky Party Monday on my blog Small Moments. I'd love it if you stopped over and linked up something from your blog!

Inspired! Love the blue with wax. What type of wax do you use and do you like wax better than clear poly for a top coat?

Thanks!

Gorgeous. I cannot find script fabric anywhere near where I live in Canada. I did find some online at a baby store! Love, love, love your bench
