I saw this at D.I. and knew I needed it:
I showed it to Ryan, super excited, and he said "Did you pay for it?"
Oh, Yeah. I paid for it. $4.00.
I know. I know your jealous.
I had some "Vintage Yellow" Glidden paint. My free glidden paint sample.
I also had some batting and some great houndstooth fabric already on hand...just barely enough...
So the total cost of the project was, well, the $4.00 I paid for the bench.
I painted, sanded, stained and stapled.
And I love it.
