Yardsale Bench

I found this at a yard sale for 10.00..it was heavy and had good bones, but it needed some loving!











Removed the fabric and a million staples to find this stained silk fabric underneath.

No staples here just lots of rusty nails!




This is a swatch of a fabric I fell in love with last month but had no idea what I was going to do with it!






And this is her all redone..check out her sexy curves..









A little distressing here and there.








I think she is a keeper!
