Dreamy White Bench

Hi friends, I'm so glad you stopped by!  Today I will show you how to tweak a bench by replacing the fabric.  I purchased this dreamy white bench a while back before I started blogging.  It wasn't so dreamy when I purchased it. It was brown and the upholstery was dark and dirty.  Sorry, there are no before pictures of it in its dreary state.

Below is a picture of the first big change to this bench.  I painted it white and covered it with a yellow and red floral print.  I thought it would look pretty in front of the window in my daughter's bedroom. Once I placed it there I realized it needed a tweak.  


To tweak it....
I replaced the floral print with white burlap.    

I didn't have to measure.  This extra piece was the perfect fit.  I used a staple gun to attach the burlap. Then I replaced the seat back on the bench.

I gave the bench personality by hanging a heart banner to the back.   If you would like to know how I made the banner just click on the link.

That's all it took for this simple tweak.

I love this sunny spot in her bedroom!


It is a cozy spot for flute practice.

Your dreamy white bench looks much prettier (and dreamy) with the white fabric. What a pretty music room!

Very pretty bench - love the heart garland also!
All white does give everything a dreamy quality. The room looks so cozy and serene. I am afraid of all white though, like some people are afraid of color!! My house is all color.
Love everything about this….so pretty!!! Thank you for sharing at One More Time Events.
What a beautiful room and I love the bench with the white burlap!

Hi Julie, I really love the beautiful whites. You are right it looks really dreamy and I can almost feel a slight breeze coming through the window. :) (Yeah, I'm pretty sure your window wasn't actually open. lol)
