A couple weekend projects to share:
Reupholstering an Old Footstool
A leftover item from Mom, this footstool was a bit dated, but in otherwise excellent condition. To make it more "ours", I re-covered it with something more my style. And it was easy! I basically wrapped the fabric around the footstool (with wrapping-paper-on-a-gift-esque corners) and stapled it in place. It took all of 10 minutes.
Inspired Bench / Storage (still in progress)
I loved the look of Pottery Barn's bench seating and wanted something similar. I bought an Ikea Kallax shelf, 2 Kallax door inserts, and 2 Branas baskets. I had old foam cushions from a past patio set and cut it up to fit the bench top. At the moment, I'm trying to figure out what to use as a cover. Originally, I wanted to use the striped fabric shown below, but I'm a little wary of it being kid / stain friendly. I might use the stripes for accent pillows instead and a dark / wipeable fabric (outdoor fabrics work well!) for the seat.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
