I had to laugh when I read Abby's awesome confession over at Just a Girl and Her Blog. Her dining room set has three chairs, but she has a family of four. So one of her sons "has always sat on an uncomfortable folding chair" at meal times. Ah . . . the joys of working with what you have! When her sister offered up an old bench, Abby knew it was time "to make my little guy a cushy bench to sit on instead!"
Sara from Thrifty Treasures had a piano bench that had seen better days. She also had a sample can of paint in a bright coral color that she was interested in using. Since Sara usually gravitates towards softer colors, she wanted to try that bright coral on something small, first. The old piano bench was a perfect opportunity.
