27  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Refinished My First Piece of Furniture on: January 29, 2014 12:51:50 PM
I had this bench for about four months before I started working on it. I've been messing around with it, off and on, since April 2013, and now because of the glory that is a snow day, the bench has been completed....finally. Besides, I need to do something besides shop online...eBay and Amazon can be a dangerous combination! Smiley

As a refresher, here is the before picture. Excuse my shadow. It was late in the day when I took this picture and my back was to the west.



I wore out my husband's electric sander. I think this has about 4-5 coats of stain and 2 coats of polyurethane on it.

This is the after picture. I used curtain tiebacks to secure the cushions to the arm supports. I also bought four more to take apart and use as trim to hide the staples in the back cushions (the back of the bench is actually completely open through the wood, so it basically looks the same on the backside).



My friends lovingly this "the toilet," because I actually turned it into a bench with shallow storage space under the cushions. There's a hinged lid in the center of the bench. Originally, there were just batting, springs and horse hair under the original fabric.

There's a handful of things I would have liked to have done differently/better, but this is the first piece of furniture I've ever redone so I'm still pretty proud of it.

He is absolutely stunning! The next time I head out to the thrift store, I have to look for a round lamp now. I need to steal your idea and maybe make a Jack Skellington one instead Smiley

***ROCKS***

I found a cute little round lamp at a thrift store a few years ago. With the help of my husband we finally came up with a good idea to put it to use.  Grin

The lamp shade is painted one both sides so you can change his face. The hat is built out of cardboard and covered in fabric. I left it hollow so heat can escape from the top.

It really surprised me. Lion Brand is better than that. Maybe the creator (and later the proofer/poster of that pattern) just didn't catch any mistakes in it.

Thank you for going thru all the trouble of fixing the pattern for us.  It's so disappointing when a pattern is written incorrectly.
