Don't get me wrong - the chairs are still ugly but at least they are cheery and look better than they did before.
I also recovered my beloved vanity bench. This little bench has been in my life as long as I can remember. For the first 20 years or so it was, judging by the bad vinyl re-upholstery job and paint splatter, used as a step stool for household projects but it also came out every Thanksgiving and Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa's for one of the kids to sit on.
When my Grandpa decided to sell her house she told all of the Grandchildren we could pick something. My sister picked the bench which she then gifted to me.
Sadly, I don't think I have a before before picture but here is the change made last week.
A rather productive day don't you think?
