Here’s a little before and after project for all of you furniture DIY’ers and re-purposers. This was a super heavy, solid wood, hand-me-down table that we’ve re-purposed into a bench for the living room. The new use for the table was simply my suggestion, Betsy did all of the work to transform it into its new life as a glossy black bench. We’re also going to make a custom cushion for it with a bolster at the back, but we found these temporary cushions at Ikea (for cheap of course) and they fit right in with the rest of the decor, so they’ll suffice as placeholders for now.
A little sanding + spray paint works wonders… This project took only one afternoon, get motivated and you can do anything! :)
