Goodwill Find

Spring always puts me in the mood to create, whether it's just homemade cards, scrapbook pages (okay, I haven't done that in awhile!), organized drawers....or bigger things, like painting or recovering thrifted furniture. You will not find me trekking through snow to get to the Goodwill, but first sign of warmer temps, I am there.

We went in yesterday and found this cute little bench.

I love it so much. What do you think? Black legs and a new seat cover? What kind of fabric should I use? Solid or print? I am thinking it will be perfect for my basement entry way, under the coat hooks.

The boys love it too.

Now they're just getting silly.

super cute! I vote for fabric that has a pattern. You have a lot of solids down there. It will look great under the hooks!

I think you should do a patterned fabric. That will be awesome!

Nice Rachel. I'll await the "after".

You people are wearing shorts there?! Are we that much further N? I'm so happy for you! :)

I think it reached 70 today, Jenica. I wasn't wearing shorts, but Ethan couldn't resist. It did feel wonderful outside.

We have some 40 degree weather coming back over the weekend though. :(

jenica- you should come see us. Katie is here now, and while driving her kids watched the thermometer in the car climb 20 degrees. Not bad for a 4 hr car trip. :)

Rachel you and Reagan should come be crafty at my house for me :)

bandanachick said... legs will be nice...I can't wait to see what you pick for fabric too.

I'm with Jessie! If ever you or Reagan have some extra creative-energy I have several areas of my home that are in need! :)
