I got a bee in my bonnet the other day and decided that i had the brawn and the brains to knock a bench together from scratch
you see the pallets in the post below that i got from my neighbour, thats what i made this bench from. After breacking them apart and deciding on how big i wanted this bench, it came together in an afternoon
I really am pleased as punch that this worked out so well. Wasnt sure if i should paint it or just seal it, then after asking a few people, including the hubster i decided to go with different shades of grey.
My mum came for a visit and of course she is a whiz with the sewing machine so i told her she had to earn her keep and make the cushion. We went to the fabric store and i was about to buy some canvas but while waiting at the till i noticed these tablecloths, wow i had a lightbulb moment and decided to go with it, so my mum sewed up the cushion from a tablecloth that only cost R115 and then i still had enough fabric for a little talble runner.
sorry about the mess in the background, this is kinda where i do all my diy stuff so there is a lot laying around, lol.
