Tossed Sewing Bench Gets a New Lease on Life

Over at Eve of Reduction, Cristin tells us, “My neighbor tipped me off that he was throwing some stuff out. So like the discreet garbage picker I am, I walked over to his curb at 11PM with a flashlight.”  She was delighted to discover this sturdy sewing bench with a handy storage compartment.

The thing this bench needed the most was new upholstery.  Cristin peeled off three layers of fabric.  She had a pretty piece of upholstery fabric leftover from another project that she decided to use.  She used wire nails to attach the fabric to the seat.  New upholstery combined with a good cleaning turned this bench into a useful and beautiful piece of furniture that Cristin will be able to enjoy in her home.  Isn’t that fabric awesome?
