This antique bench was an absolute mess when we found it by the side of the road, but nothing a little bit of paint and fabric couldn’t fix. Well…. it took a bit more than just a paint job and some new upholstery. This bench required a lot of wood glue, wood fill, and a few nails to stabilize the wobbly frame. The seat required new foam and batting, and a whole lot of TLC.
My mom and I love transforming old, ugly, disgarded pieces of furniture into beautiful treasures. This was such a fun project for the two of us. These kinds of projects are right up our alley and just so happen to be a specialty offered here at our store, Alchemy fine living. If you have an old piece of furniture in desperate need of a makeover stop by the store for a consultation, shoot us an email, or give us a call. We’d be happy to help!!
