Fabulous!  Is that upholstery fabric?  Where did you get the damask fabric?

Thanks for all of the compliments Smiley

To answer the paint question, I used Rust-Oleum "farm series" spray paint, in John Deere Yellow. It took four cans/coats to fully cover it. I thought it would be the easiest type of paint to use, since there are so many small holes in the bench.

The fabric was purchased as remnants at JoAnn Fabrics. The damask fabric for the cushions is upholstry fabric, and the fabric for the pillows is a woven cotton. I think it's one of the quilting fabrics.

Glad you like it!

That yellow really pops and I absolutely love the red and black fabric. I like the contrasts with the black & white, red and yellow.
Don't you love it when something that was scroungy becomes show-stopping?
