Paris Script Bench

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.

This post is linked to the amazing parties on my sidebar.

Just lovely, and hardly recognizable! It looks great at the little wooden desk with the gray items above it, too. Nice work!
