Drop Cloth Bench Makeover

First of all, I want to thank y'all so much for all the sweet comments and love from our Master Bedroom Reveal last week! There were several comments about our bench at the foot of the bed. So today I wanted to share with you what the bench looked like before it made it into our bedroom. 


 Here's the before shot of the antique bench with dark wood and dated burgundy velvet fabric. We actually found this at a thrift store years ago. It was a great score for sure!


I had it reupholstered in a neutral drop cloth fabric and painted the dark wood white for a more contemporary look. 


I love all of the little details and how well it looks at the end of our bed.

  6. Mallori what a beautiful makeover! I quite like the idea of using a drop cloth for upholstery fabric combined with painted white and some shabby chicness = gorgeous! Your bench caught my eye over at The Scoop Party.

  10. Mallori, I have a wooden bench/loveseat, too. My son just finished pulling out the thousands of staples. The next step is to reglue the joints, paint it, and reupholster it. I'm thrilled to see how beautiful your looks. It gives me hope. Ann Marie @ Iris Abbey
    P.S. I found your post through the It's So Very Cheri/Three Mango Seeds Link Party.
