Do you ever just go the craft store when you don’t really need anything?
Yeah….me neither….I always need something.
Well this fabric was one of those, “I’m here for glue sticks, but oh…my, I must have this pretty thing, even if it sits in my closet for months collecting dust…..the kind of purchase you get even when you left your coupon at home…”
But since purchasing this fabric, I’ve been determined to find a good use for it (you know to ease my conscience and all) and I had just enough to use it on two different projects…..
Here was my first project:
A rolling bench seat that I picked up at a garage sale. Totally ugly, but I saw potential…plus I’ve never “reupholstered” anything before……
A look at the inside….
And here is how it looks after a bit of Rusteolum “Heirloom White”, some Sanding, and some fancy (glue gun) reupholstering:
Shanty right? I’m in love with it!
Then of course my second (what am I going to do with the rest of this expensive fabric) project:
Enter Tacky Art from Goodwill:
Actually, Ignore Tacky Art…Look at the pretty frame!:
Covering up the canvas with fabric (again using glue gun method):
And then hanging up in just the spot:
I’m not sure if I really saved any money with these two projects, but it was fun learning some new skills and having some custom pieces in my house!
