(A throwback post for my favoritest project I ever built with my own two hands. The one I'm most proud about, my couch bench. Paperflowerdrive.blogspot is closed now and I'm slowly transfering my projects on paperflowerdrive to here. This post originally had almost 5,000 page hits alone! So please enjoy my big bench reveal..again heheh)
I've been sewing like a mad lady to finally get this bench done! & now it's done :) heheh I know I initially wanted a bench so my husband would have a place to take off his shoes without him having to go all through the living room trekking in god knows what...but now that it's all done.. I don't like him sitting on it messing up my beautiful work LOL! It started as a simple bench idea, and turned out to be full blown crazyy project that cost me a ton of monies and time, but it's awesome and I can say..I MADE THAT BENCH!! :)
Let's take a look back and remember one more time all the hard work I went through before I show you what she is today..Shall we?! We shall :)
The dreaded ugly freeeeee couch from craigslist that was on it's last leg.
Pulling out 74956230847309 nails.
Sawing and nailing
The primering on my sad tiny apartment patio.
Taping for the painting.
Painted and ready for finishing touches.
And now ladies and gentlemen I introduce you to MY BENCH!!!!!!!! Made with no prior knowledge to sawing, nailing, hammering, gluing or woodwork skills besides shop class in the 7th grade!
So you love my 6 foot long bench?!??!?! Yes it's huge. & I made it!! :) :) :)
