Happy Pink Saturday!

Last week as I was taking my daughter to school and on the way I spotted this old piano bench in my neighbors trash. I thought to myself, " I could do a remake on that," I was still in my pajamas and was to embarrassed to stop to pick it up. When I picked up my daughter the bench was still there, so...I made her get it and put it in the back of my truck. I couldn't wait to get home and begin fixing it up.

Here are some pics of the before and after of my remake of the the little old piano bench.


I tore off the old fabric &I lightly sanded it.

The inside wood was broken so I glued it.

 I painted some old wood crack it on it and painted it white. Sanded the edges for an aged look.
I covered the seat using some old vintage Upostry fabric I had. The fabric has a PINK flower stripe design on it.

When I painted the inside I masked out the manufactures lable (Tonk Bench Mfg.Co.Chicago) so I could keep it visable. Then I lined the inside with some vintage PINK rose scented drawer paper.

I am using it as a foot rest as I sit at my computer. It's also a great place to store my printer paper.

As I always say one womans trash is anothers womans treasure.

ENJOY!

Excellent. Isn't it amazing how we don't have the courage to rescue something? I could never get myself to do it, but really it is a noble cause! And, yes, I have had other people do it for me. :-)

Thank you so much for posting my giveaway. Happy Pink Saturday!

Great revamp Jany. You make me laugh at making your daughter go get it. I m ade y son go get a whole stack of wallpaper books at the side of the road a while ago. He was like "Why?" He should be used to me by now ... Have a great day.
