Today I'm taking a trip to the Los Angeles Fashion District! Ya! I can't wait to look at fabric, walk around, go into Santee Alley (does it remind anyone else of Diagon Alley from Harry Potter?)... the traffic is the only down side, but I'm hoping its well worth it!
So, today I'm sharing a Pinterest project that is "In Progress". Here's the Pinterest inspiration...
My brother and sister-in-law recently bought a house. The previous owners left this little beauty behind...
They were just going to throw it out, so I asked them if I could have it. I knew immediately that I would turn it into a bench. It's been sitting in our garage for a while, and while it doesn't bother me, my husband glowers at it every time he has to move it to get to a tool or supply, so I figured I'd better start transforming it.
My supportive husband was very happy to start the redo! I think he figured it was one step closer to getting it out of his garage (although he doesn't know that I want a Shaker style table from a local thrift shop to take it's place in my restoration/redo line up!). So, he cut the legs off the dresser while I started taking the hardware off the drawers and sanding it down.
Some day I might get a real smile from this kid.
I'm debating between 2 colors, each one depending on where I put the bench. IF I decide it'll go in our room, it'll be grey/blue. If I decide to put it in the entry, it'll be cream or soft white. Any suggestions?
Have a great day! And remember, if you need an invitation to Pinterest, please email me ayokleyjessup(at)gmail(dot)com! Or leave a comment and I'll send you an invite! I'll get this bench done this week and share the finished product next Monday!
Have a great day!
