Sooo..A long hot summer has caused more delays but alas..finally some finished projects and yippie finished furniture!! I think I was equally excited to get to post something finished on this blog (took me long enough!) as I was to actually get it finished. I do not live along the equator last time I checked, however mother nature does not seem to understand this. Nor does she understand that when you are trying to accomplish something that is weather dependant (like paint), you NEED her to help a girl out! I am so happy with the way this piece turned out. I have been hunting all over for just the right bench for our master, and finally decided to use this past it's prime coffee table. A few cuts with skil saw (performed by Mr. F) and the transformation began. (I do realize just how bad the background is in all of the before pics, but I did manage to take them, so I will beg your forgiveness here) I have to vent a bit on our local resources as far as fabric goes. Not one single store carried anything in grey. Timeless, simple, beautiful grey. Nothing anywhere. So I took myself to my local Target and there waiting for me was the perfect grey (already made into a window panel, a trick I will admit to using for other projects in the past). One pair of scissors later, I have it ready to be mounted. I love the finished product, what do you think??
