The other refresh I did is a little larger, but still very easy. We've had an entry way bench since we moved in that R got from Target a while back for his apartment in Charlottesville. It's ideal for the space and functional, but not exactly stunning in its design. This is how it originally looked, very blah and beige.
The next thing that had to go was the cushion. I was going to go to U-fab in the Fan and get it reupholstered but realized that would be pricey (U-Fab is still my go to for fabric though). I did a quick search online and found out that there are places where you can order custom sized cushions and pillows in a fabric of your choosing. I used cushionsource.com which I will absolutely plug, because they were really easy to use, had a HUGE collection of fabrics, were reasonably priced, and delivered quickly.
I chose a nautical fabric with coral (yes, yes I know, nautical is also SO overdone, what can I say I am not original, but the rustic and nautical styles are two that I will love for life, so really who cares?). The end result....
So those are my two refreshes. As we speak I am definitely day dreaming about what else I can do to freshen up the look of our house this season. I am very much my mother's daughter and am always thinking about my next project as soon as I finish my last.
