Shabby Antique Bench

Lately, I've been finishing pieces of furniture that have been sitting around in the back of my garage forever.



 
 My latest project was this sturdy antique bench.


 
I found it at a tag sale this past summer looking like this...



I gave it a coat of white chalk paint and heavily distressed it.
 
 
 
And then I sealed it with wax to give it a little extra durability.
 
 
 
The fabric was from my stash and was originally from IKEA. I love their fabrics and this one is no exception!
 

 
 
 This science based fabric would be perfect for so many projects.
 

 
 Here's one final picture...locals, this one is still for sale!
