Back in October, the mister and I went on a Goodwill adventure and found a great metal bench (albeit in need of a bit of help) for just $10.
It had some horrible old fabric on the cushion, and badly painted brownish-orange fake marble on the metal parts. It was a must-have, though, because it was so sturdy, and was the perfect size for a little foot stool/tray table in our living room! We decided to give it a good home and a bit of a makeover.
We easily fixed it up with some hammered metal spraypaint and an old sham pillowcase that we weren’t using. Total cost? Under $15!
Here are the before and after pics. Did you know a bench this ugly could look so good with a little bit of spray paint and upholstering?! Enjoy!
