Hope For a Bench

Found this little mid century Danish modern bench at the thrift store for $5.
We had a couch with this same teal fabric when I was young (that's how I KNOW the bench is OLD!).
A quick paint job on the legs, some walnut stain wiped over the paint and a new fabric for the top and I have a fresh bench.  I knew it had hope so I made a little hope pillow for it too.

I was honored to be blog spotted on Studio 5--a television program out of Utah.  They featured my burlap pillow.

  5. I love this bench. I wish I knew more about thrift store shopping. The only thrift store I know of locally is Goodwill. I wouldn't even know where to start.

    Teal fabric isn't old....yellow and orange furry flowers would be much older. :)
