Chevron Love

Hi all!!! Just another beautiful spring day around these parts. I just LOVE being outside and FINALLY being able to complete some projects that have been calling my name all Winter. Today I am going to show you a little bench seat that needed a little t.l.c. Almost to the point that I didn't really know what to do with it. After some heavy sanding and tearing out of nails I was able to get the look that I was going for. I just ADORE this fabric that I used...I feel like chevron is all the rage right now. I see it everywhere in furniture, clothes, bags, etc. I have fallen in love with it as well.

Anyhow I picked up this cute little seat at an estate sale that my Mom and Dad invited me to go on with them. It was during the day so I had to take my little angel with me. Of course being in someone else's house with no lights and a little bit filthy probably isn't the place for a little girl but I was still able to find a few treasures. She loved digging through some of the stuff herself and it led me to believe she might take after her mother and have a LOVE for finding treasures. :)

This piece needed lots of sanding and the seat part had about a million nails, not even exaggerating. So once I got the sanding done I primed it and painted it this gray. I then took apart the seat and re-covered it with this adorable chevron print. I think it looks much better than the faded, stained, orange material. Hopefully I can find a place for this or someone else can in there home. I hope you all enjoy your weekend!!
