Vintage Phone Bench Restoration

I love this bench. Seriously. Even before I made it Bloom. I still had some lovey feelings for it. I love the curves and the floral carving in the chair back. I love the little side desk with additional storage. I love that it is naturally distressing in some parts and how it looked even better when I added some "faux" distressing of my own. It is just the most perfect little accent piece I think I have ever come upon. Let me show you how it looked when it came to my garage:


Now, I know what you're thinking. Leopard print fabric? What the what??? Let me tell you guys... that's not even fabric. Whoever had the priveledge of owning this adorable little bench actually used a leopard print TOWEL to cover it's adorable little seat! Once I got that odd choice of decorative seat fabric off, the bench looked a million times better. I decided on a crisp, sage green for the wood which I lightly distressed once the paint had time to cure. A few coats of clear wax added just the right amount of sheen to the finish. Danielle recovered the seat in a gorgeous, script fabric that added just the right amount of elegant, vintage charm.

I am in love! The finished piece is probably one of my favorite projects yet. Take a look!







So purdy. Though it pains me to part with it, this piece is available for purchase locally. Contact us at Bloom8281@gmail.com. Thanks so much for reading today!
