Well it's week 2 and I feel like I'm off to a good start. Remember I mentioned I would be doing a DIY bench project? Well it's finito. I bought the bench below from a thrift store about a million years ago and have just been waiting to spruce it up. (Ignore my hideously messy craft room. It's a well used space.)
It was pretty ugly. Someone covered the seat with a flimsy purple fabric that wasn't meant for upholstery. This was the easiest fix ever though. It involved a can of spray paint, a staple gun and some fabric that I've been holding onto for a while now. And voila!
I think it's a pretty huge improvement and it fits perfectly in this little space. I planned on doing the touch up painting over the weekend, but it was too cloudy to see well so it will have to wait until next weekend.
I also ordered this from Ballard Designs for the bathroom. Not sure about the color but we'll see when it arrives.
Lastly, I ordered the roman shade which will be in the same Hot House Flowers fabric as the bench.
As for the sunporch, the fabric for the curtains is in, just waiting for the hardware which may take a couple of weeks.
And I bought some lamps. Here's one of them.
