    Oh for heaven’s sake! You did it again le kare. I’m so into this black and white motif lately…not exactly by design…just happen to have a ton of the same paint and lots to paint. I’m laughing at some of the before shots in the background. Looks so much like my garage…er, um shop! I have that stool too…a couple of them, actually, waiting for help!!!!

    Girl! You ROCK! Awesome!

  19. Amadna says:

    That would look so cute at the end of a bed! What a great idea.

  20. ColetteMarie says:

    I absolutely love your bench! What a great idea. I saw 2 great old chairs @ a local junk shop the other day for $5 each. This would have been a perfect idea for them, but of course, I didn’t buy the chairs since I already have too many chairs & it never occured to me that I could make a bench like this.

    I am wondering, though, how you covered the 2 chairs with one complete pad & uphostery. I have repadded individual chairs & reupholstered them before. Did you cut one padding straight across & not use the one chair’s existing pad at all?
    Thanks for your help!!


  21. Michele says:

    Wow, this is just the bench I’ve been thinking of to go with the vanity I’m refinishing!!!! Uhhhg, i could have picked the chairs when i bought the vanity last sunday. My car was too full!!!

  22. Girl, you are genius! This was one fabulous idea.
