From Table to Bed

I must admit, I am always looking for a good deal. So much so to Mr. C's dismay! I will find a deal and have no clue what I am going to do with it but just cannot pass it up. That is where these little ladies came in. I found these on a local online yard sale. They were just the benches to a farm type table. No table included, just these two ladies. But for 20.00 for both, I could not pass up the deal.  Mr. C and I drove out to get them and just let me say, I am so glad I took him because it way down a county road and I know I would have ended up lost. lol

They were being stored in a shed, we loaded them up and they came home and sat in our garage. They sat and sat and sat! One day a friend of mine told me she was looking for a bench for the end of her daughters bed. DING DING DING!! Out came one of the benches. We sanded and painted this lady a deep black. I added foam and a scape of material I had and this old table bench now sits at the end of a bed.

I love how she came out. Now I just need to pull out her sister and give her a makeover. I think that might be a summer project.

That's a great idea to transform an old bench into something useful. Love the fabric.
