Few More Thrift Items Added

A few months ago I found this bench at a thrift store
It was so blended in with everything else around it
No one bothered to look at the price tag
It used to look like this
Surrounded by many old pillows
And priced at $20
When I took it home and took faded pink fabric off
There was this really bright mustard color fabric underneath
I suspect it was once a Spanish Hacienda style bench

I painted the wood with antique white paint

And covered the seat with bargain fabric ($5.99/yard)

And while I was at it

I painted another old chair in same paint
And covered the seat with left over fabric to match the bench
So that they can both be in our breakfast area

It has been wonderfully warm and sunny here in LA
Did you have a nice New Year's Day?
Have a wonderful weekend!
