Vanity Bench Project

Thanks to having all this at home time, I finished refurbishing my thrift store vanity bench! Not too bad for my first time upholstering.

I had fabric leftover, so I also covered a magnetic board to hang necklaces or whatever. I picked up the fabric at Diversity Thrift along with the bench. Originally the fabric I used was a room darkening drapery panel that used a decorative front fabric and the lining was the room darkening part so it was easy to separate the two pieces. In all the bench and fabric combined was about $10.

I originally wanted to paint the bench a lighter rose/copper color to bring out the decorative inlay of my vanity, but it didn’t look right. I started over and chose English Leather Glossy and used Metallic Copper Penny for the recessed trim.
