Guest Room Bench

Several months ago, I snagged this little $5 bench from a thrift store. I thought it would be the perfect addition to our guest room, as it would provide a drop zone for bags or a spot to slip on shoes. My goal was to use things I already had on hand to give it a quick face lift. 

Since the fabric had seen better days, I grabbed a remnant from my stash to recover it. 

We popped off the top...

and were left with a solid piece of wood to recover. The lines were nice and straight, making this a simple piece to recover. I added some fresh batting, covered it with new fabric, and stapled like crazy. The wooden legs received a coat of leftover green spray paint that was stored in the garage. 

To finish it off, we added a mirror that we already owned above some pegs that I bought for $1. It's nothing earth-shattering, but I like that it makes sense of that blank space between the door and closet. Gotta love a quick makeover!

Hmm... Maybe I should do a post on the entire guest room, as it's received a few additional updates this year.
