X-Bench Makeover!


This fabulous, Klismos-inspired bench has a new home! It sold at the Merry, Merry Market, a day after it was finished!

The happy, greige and white Ikat fabric looks great with the drybrushing technique and an armada of nickel nailheads!

But check out what it looked like before:

It was a pretty ratty castoff (rescued by gal pal Connie from a discard pile up North) and looked as if it had been upholstered in Early American Movie Theater Seat!

It needed to be stripped all the way down. Here’s a look at it partway through; even the canvas needed to come off.

There were a lot of tacks to remove; none salvagable. But recyclable!

Here it is again, looking handsome with a pair of chairs that also sold at the Market. Love the X-shape; looking forward to finding another like this one!
