The Dining Room Bench

Yesterday I wrote about the dining room table makeover and told you I’d post a photo of the bench today.  I decided to use a bench for a few reasons, the first reason is buying one bench is cheaper then buying 2 chairs, plus with the 4 chairs that came with the set it would be hard to come up with a great set of chairs to compliment the 4 and the last reason is I have a 12 year old who I knew would claim the bench as her own!  (Thanksgiving she claimed it, and allowed her Aunt Liz to sit next to her!)

Here is the before pic.  I purchased the bench at Home Goods.


To unify the bench with the chairs I painted the legs the same color as the chairs and I also used the same Waverly fabric on the bench.

The After:



There you have it!  Don’t be afraid to use something unconventional and remember the same paint and fabric can bring the whole thing together in a very cohesive look!
