I’ve made another attempt at refurbishing furniture! My mom gave me this gossip bench when I moved out of the house and into my first apartment, but she says I claimed it earlier than that.
I love the shape and the little cubby meant for the phone books. I’ve always planned to fix it up a bit, but never got around to it. For the last two years it’s been hanging out in my aunt’s garage, where a family of mice ripped out the old horse hair stuffing and made themselves a nice little home in another of my boxes.
It seemed like a good time to recover the seat.
Check out a close up of the old cushion- yuck!
And look at it now! I love the geometric blue and white fabric that I found at JoAnn’s for $2/yd, and the mayo rub seems to have really revived the wood. Who knew mayonaise had so many uses!
