The hunt is over! Over I say! I have been searching high and low for the perfect size coffee table/ottoman/bench/whatever-as-long-as-I-can-put-my-feet-on-it solution for my living room. Everything I found was either too big, too small, too wide, too deep or too expensive. Enter Craigslist. As usual. Here is what I found: a vanity bench with the perfect dimensions and only $30 and the frame was already white. Sold!
Only ... look at that fabric. Yuck.
But I'm no stranger to fabric projects, and I have done this before. I just followed the same process I used in making an upholstered ottoman last year. First, I took off the top of the bench. Then I removed the fabric. I was able to reuse the foam and just added double-thick batting and some extra fabric that I had on hand in my stash. I tried a bunch of options but liked the simplicity of the coral the best. And here she is!
Now all I need is a little tray for the top to hold drinks and such and I'm set. Ahhhh ... I just love my little bench/ottoman. What do you think?
See you swoon,
