Once upon a time we took 3 cast off yard sale chairs and upcycled them into a custom bench that is a perfect fit in our dining nook.
You can review the bench tutorial here.
As the space evolved it was inevitable for the bench to evolve too. When we updated the kitchen, the colors took on an earthy, neutral palette with lots of texture. The kitchen continues to be the room that changes the most frequently around here…
When the floors were redone this winter, I updated the bench by giving each chair a coat of MMSMP Grainsack over the bold colored chalk paint. The milk paint resisted the chalk paint in a few places giving just a subtle distressed look.
Also, I came across 3 neutral toile printed pillows that were perfectly sized for each chair. They were only a buck for each pillow cover. I found some inserts and boom!
It’s like a new bench for little cost (again)! What have you upcycled lately?
