Some of you may remember that I bought this bench from IKEA a couple of weeks ago?
Well with some TLC, white paint and sturdy cotton fabric... it is now our porch bench.
I used white primer as the first coat of paint, as the cheap IKEA bench was no good for sanding, nor was I in the mood for it! And then a few coats of white acrylic paint and a good coat of varnish.
For the cushion I just re-purposed the filling of two old cushions I had lying around. It has a zip all across the back so it is easy to wash as well. I just made sure I bought a sturdy cotton as it gets a fair bit of use every day!
It even matches the advent calendar that is hanging in the back of the door! Looking at these pictures I realise how much we need a picture for that back wall... well I guess something else to add to my to-do list!
What projects are you working on for the house, I would love to hear about any DIY you are embarking on!
