Thank you all for your get well soons while I was out. That was no doubt the worst flu I've had in...as long as I can remember. I wouldn't say I'm back to 100% yet, but 85% will do. I've heard that the flu shot isn't so strong this year, but I'd still say get one if you can. Although, people seem to have strong opinions about wether or not to get flu shots. Have you ever said 'flu shot' in a crowded room? Oy! Anyway, do what you can to stay healthy.
As I ease myself back into the standing position I thought I'd share a simple DIY that took all of 20 minutes. (my favorite kind)
I picked this bench up off the side of the road (better than a hitchhiker) and then promptly put it in my basement for the next two years. Par for the course, I know. These are the only true before pictures I have.
I don't even want to know what the stain on that seat is from. Dirty. Ugly. But sturdy.
I sprayed it white and used some of the fabric I shared here. A few staples later and as NeNe would say, Bam!
I love the color and pattern on this fabric but thought it was a bit too delicate to have as a pillow in this house. Who knows if a bench will keep it safe any better than a pillow would, but we shall see.
It appears to be a wonderful place to sit and look out the window with friends.
Mother tested. Kid approved.
This bench will be residing in the living room. Along with several other things that have been finished and added. This week I'll be featuring a completed project everyday. I feel bad about the big tease last week and then bailing last week.
So how was your weekend?
