For our whole 13 year relationship, my husband has had no interest in getting creative with me. I always did it alone. All of a sudden, he has gotten inspired and we are a crafty team and I couldn't be happier. It's so exciting for me to have a partner in crime and he's proud of the sense of accomplishment. It's a win-win!!
So anyhow, we've been hitting up garage sales looking for cool things to redo. We came across this very old, very yucky bench. The fabric was gross and falling apart, but I saw the possibilities. My husband didn't, but he went along with it. So, we went to the fabric store and chose this pretty geometric fabric and went to work! We are so happy with how it turned out. It has a whole new life.
Whenever I buy old things, I like to imagine who owned them before. I love that these pieces have history. It makes me happy
Here's the dreaded 'before':
Here's my hubby hard at work:
Here's the 'after':
And here's a pic of my Mischa taking ownership:
