I've been working on my sweet bench find this weekend and it is finally done! O.K. so it's not, but it looks like it is!! I would have had it finished if I hadn't had problems with my stapler and tried to fix it by myself. After an hour of trying to figure it out, I almost had it and then all of the pieces went flying!!! Not so awesome!! Funny enough I was trying to tack the material down with those tiny little nails that come with picture hanging hardware. I ran out about half way through the first cushion, so I just tucked the material around the other cushion and pressed it into place. I made a coordinating pillow. I thought it looked kind of cute wrapped in a sheer scarfy thingy that my sister gave to me. I got the fabric at Broadbends on a recommendation from Heather. I am a big fan of that store for material!! If you live around here, it's on 100 w. In Lehi. Very cute fabric choices!! I am so happy with the way that this turned out!!! I love it and I owe it all to this stuff!! Have you ever used the stain gels?? This is the first time that I've tried them and I LOVE it!! It is so much easier to antique something and it's not so messy! The gel helps it to color really quickly and easily!! Seriously, if you like the antique look you have got to try this stuff!! I got mine at Robert's for $1.27. After painting it(like 5 times, white takes SO many dang coats).
I sanded it and then just took a washcloth and wiped the stain gel on top. Easy as pie! I loved this little bench so much that I rearranged my front room around it!! Of course I was up until 2 am because that gave me the darn rearranging bug which just seems to grow exponentially anytime I start. I was tired, but happy!
