Fixing up an old bench

Before just a plain old bench that I've had for years!
Now a beautiful bench that matches all the other black furniture in the house!
A new pillow to go on the beautiful new bench! I had this fabric left from a quilt that I've been working on for my youngest daughter and decided to make a cute 1930's pillow for my bench. It looks so much better than the one that was there!
I also found a basket at Ikea that hubby can throw his B-ball hats in instead of throwing them on the bench. When I was in the garage working on the shelf for the entry I looked up at hubby's work bench and saw this wonder old scale just setting on top of the work bench just wanting to come into the house. So I cleaned it up and I think it look great, it just needs a little something else up there but I haven't found that yet!

It raining here today and I'm loving it! Its a good day to stay home and get some sewing and knitting done.

Have a wonderful Day!


  1. I don't think it's likely I've ever run across a bench or a quilt I didn't like!

  2. The bench is lovely.
    We are enjoying some perfectly wondeful weather for a change. Not too hot, not cold, just perfect!! And DRY for a change too. I'm not complaining. :)

  3. The bench is lovely. You have so many wonderful ideas.

  4. Julie,

    Your bench looks great with the black and natural wood. Wow what a difference! I love the pillow too and the shelves.


  5. Your bench is so cute, and I LOOOOVE the new pillow you made to go on it! I'm a fairly new quilter but have enjoyed it immensely. Your pillow is great inspiration :)
