Today’s Friday Furniture piece is this antique bench that we picked up over 10 years ago.
We painted it white and covered it in a damask print material and have been trying to unload this baby ever since.
This past winter we decided to distress it.
Still no bites.
I decided that perhaps the material was a bit outdated???
So I re-covered it with some painters drop cloth that I had leftover from my curtain project.
check out our curtain project post here
The burlap on the bottom is original!
I was going to remove it and replace it with new.
But I thought it best to leave it as is.
Here she is today!
Painters Drop Cloth.
Staple Gun and extra staples.
I prefer to use an air compressor staple gun but for this post I decided to use our manual style instead of dragging in the compressor and hose.
(which are both covered in paint and stain!)
Pull tight, staple and trim off extra material.
Shabby Distressed Antique Bench.
Re-upholstered with painters drop cloth to give it that old grain sack look.
Perfect for an entryway or at the foot of the bed.
Measures 38 inches wide from arm to arm.
37 inches tall (at tallest point on back of bench).
26 1/2 inches from seat to floor.
And 19" deep in the seat.
This piece is available for purchase.
Local pick-up only.
