I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

BENCH UP CYCLE

BENCH UP CYCLE

While my mother-in-law was cleaning out her mother's basement, she found this bench and thought of me so she asked if I wanted it. I thought-a free piece of furniture with 100% potential?-Yes please! It was a pretty quick transformation because the bench was in good shape-it just had been used quite a bit. I unscrewed the cushion and replaced the material with a wool/flannel fabric. I just stapled the fabric to the bottom of the seat. Then I sanded the bench and stained it a dark walnut. When the stain dried, I taped off the legs, covered up the rest of the chair and spray painted the bottom of the legs gold. 


And that was it. Not too much work for a bench that looks completely brand new! And it was free because I had everything I needed already-I just love those types of projects! Maybe you should go digging around your grandma's basement to see if she's ready to part with some hidden treasures :)
