French Bench

I finally had this great bench reupholstered.  The transformation is amazing.  I paid $60.00 for the bench and $200.00 to reupholster.  I am happy with the result.  I used the reverse side of the fabric for the piping and buttons.  I like the mix.  I also painted the legs white.  Since I have hardwood floors, there would not have been enough contrast had I kept them natural.

Don't be afraid to bargain shop and have things reupholstered.  Customizing pieces to fit your decor is what creates that eclectic look.
