Let me tell you the story about this bench. I bought it on a whim at Target when I first moved into my apartment and used it as an ottoman/coffee table. After I realized I had quickly purchased things for my space without really thinking about the style I wanted and loved, I knew it needed a makeover. While it's a fun fabric and pattern, it's just not "me". I love more muted and feminine patterns. I decided to go with a seaglass-turquoise color print with subtle dots, perfectly coordinating with my pillow fabric (I'll show you those soon!)
Here's how I reupholstered the bench...
Step 3: First, I pulled up one side of the fabric, making sure it was tight against the leg. I cut a slit in the fabric right by the legs so I could tuck them under the original fabric.
Step 4: My boyfriend, who is clearly much strong than me, staple gunned the new fabric on the bench while I was pulling it tight around all the corners and edges.
I love the new fabric and can't wait to show you how well it goes with my sofa pillows!
Have you upholstered anything before? Any tips?! Do share!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
