Bench made from old end table

Good Morning my Beauties!
I hope you are having a good week so far...I
don't know about you guys, but the days are flying by.
I have been able to get a few projects snuck in here and there..and this is one of them.

If you remember my 14 year old daughter did me a huge favor by scoring one of two tables
at a garage sale for me. I couldn't believe it when I got the call. She was all teenager like..
"hey Mom, I am at the garage sale and I know you like to buy old junk and fix it"
I just laughed...
"well anyway, I got you a table for $5 and a beat up one for $2"
I couldn't have been more proud!!
Then, "Now you need to come pick it up" and "I want my money back"

As for beat up..she was kinda right....The table top must have been really damaged so they just
stuck this piece of wood on top. I thought about sanding it and painting it.
But then I had a better Idea.

I went to hobby lobby and got some of that really dense batting they sell right by the roll in the
fabric department. 

I stapled it down and then covered it with one of my "at the moment, FAVORITE fabrics"

went outside and painted the base with a mix of Vermont slate and Dover white.

I then waxed and distressed it and reattached the seat to the base.

It turned out so cute. I tried to figure out a way to keep it in my house...but it didn't fit anywhere.
But the good news is...that before I could even post about it; it SOLD..
So happy day to me...LOL!

I hope you all have a BEAUTIFUL day!
