I’m a homeowner! Sorry for the outburst, I’m just still beyond thrilled and shocked that I’ve actually made a huge goal of mine come true–to buy a place of my own in Boston city limits. It’s been a long time coming, but I couldn’t be more ready to move into my place.
I closed at the beginning of April, but am leasing back the place to the former owners for 2 months. So, while I await my early June move in date, I’m doing a few do it yourself home decor projects.
I recently found an antique bench that would look amazing under some of the many windows in my new place. Seeing beyond the quilted fabric on top of the piece, I looked at the bones of the piece—beautiful solid wood legs with an interesting shape, and the easy ability to remove the current upholstery on the seat and replace it with something unique, means something to me, and lastly, fitting to my personal aesthetic.
And so, I’ve been sourcing and purchasing pieces of Pendleton fabric in large enough pieces to refinish the bench. I want to have options so I can see which will look best based on size and scale of pattern to bench; I can also use any of the remnants I don’t pick for future items of any kind.
More snaps when I decide and finish the bench.
