We are now in the MIDDLE of the dining room makeover. After many detours…Christmas… a wedding… a wedding reception… decorating the living room… etc…
I am now back at it.
This is my latest addition …
A stylish tufted bench.
An upholstered bench at the dining room table is a wonderfully fresh look! And because no chair backs distract the view, it shows off the table better.
I had been looking around for quite awhile for a bench that was reasonably priced, long and high enough to fit my table, and with casters.
I found it on the World Market website.
I want to chance the finish on the wood… just a tad! It really is quite interesting. Sorta like repurposed wood. But I’m going to give it a quick color wash to tone down the dark bluish hues.
The seat is very nicely tufted and the cushion substantial. It’s a well made piece for the price. However, the color of the fabric does now work with my room at all. I knew it wouldn’t before I bought it. It’s a sort of grey with an aubergine tone (although it looks brown in my photo).
It will be reupholstered to match the other side chairs in the room.
Will I upholster it? Are you kidding? I have 3 more chairs to do~ one of the chairs at the table still needs to be covered! If you have not read my adventures in reupholstering… see reupholstering a chair, the saga Part I and the sequil…reupholstering a chair, the saga Part II.
