I came across this cute little bench at a flea market over the summer for only $8! For months it sat in my parent’s garage as I waited to find the time to make it into what I had envisioned.
Finally I found some time, so I proceeded to paint the bench a nice off-white. I planed on putting the bench in my kitchen, and I wanted it to be neat and fresh. After the paint was applied and the bench was transported to my kitchen, it was buried under odds and ends and mail as I waited to find the time to sew up some appropriate cushions. I had the perfect fabric already…
Lovely vintage fabric! I love the color and the print!
So a month or two after being moved to my kitchen, I have finally completed it all!
I really love the result! No more acting as a storage table; the bench now serves as a quiet little sitting area by my window. It’s a rather nice place for coffee and a bagel in the morning!
I have a new crochet project to share today! (I’m sure you notice my crochet posts become more common during the colder months!)
I was inspired to make a geometric type blanket after I saw a similar one on Pinterest.
To create this blanket, I crocheted strips of hexagons, sort of like super long granny squares, in various patterns and colors, and then connected them together.
I’m pretty pleased with this one! I now have a desire to attempt more geometric sort of designs… maybe a triangle blanket? Time will tell!
