an old project

this is a project I LOVE that I did a long time ago but have never shared.
The chairs were found at Curb-mart (i.e. fancy way to say the curb) via my mom. Good eye, Mom!
I set them up and took a picture to give you the visual...
oooh! Someone's throwing away those chairs!
My amazing daughter could do something sweet with those!
Thanks chair-throwing-away-people!
I'll take 'em!

I put them side-by-side & gave them a light coat of matte mod podge
to keep the paint at just the right chippy-ness.

I found the perfect board/door thing combing the my grandma's attic

I added some padding and fabric to the board and finished it with black braided trim.
I bought this great black & white houndstooth suiting fabric at a
garage sale and covered a rectangle pillow form.
I love the way this pillow turned out.

Is this not the cutest little bench?!
