So, this is part of my attempt to keep up with the Pretty Crafty Home with Sandra's Cherry Heart blog.
I've longed for an area in my room where little visitors can come to play (with toys and such...not my stuff!). I spied this child's bench/ toy box last summer at a garage sale and got it for $3. The condition is good even though the color is bland and I really quite hate the decoupage over the black painted seat.
My idea is to paint it, of course, after removing the decoupage, and then make a little seat cushion and a couple of small pillows for it. I have the paint and I've pulled some fabrics to match for the cushion cover and I'm sure I can find some fabric for the pillows as well. (The quart of paint up there was free by the way with a coupon from Ace Hardware! So it is definitely keeping with the theme for June!)
This little bench is not the end of it. I have a plan to make it a cute little corner of my room that has some fun toys and books and pretty things for the little girls that sometimes visit me. I'm so excited to get started! This weekend is going to be hot! I plan on staying in my cool basement sewing room and getting this project done by Monday.
Have a great weekend! Happy Sewing!
The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. ~Psalm 121:7-8
