Fabulous Shabby Bench Makeover!

Who can resist a Shabby Makeover story?
Especially when it turns out this stinkin cute...
The kids have been using this little bench in the middle of the living room to sit on,
the color of the original fabric has been driving me crazy
the original fabric was all spotted up and not fabulous....
Sooooo, I just had to fluff it up with this sweet shabby fabric
and some added vintage trim...
The stool came out a little artsy looking but it floats my boat and that's all that matters!
I found the pretty fabric flopped in a throw away thrift store box
 it was originally a dust ruffle but was torn in several places
I just knew it would be fabulous for something!
Now when the kids drag this bench around the living room if it gets left out,
at least it is interesting to look at...
I am partying with the 
Shabby Chic Cottage for transformation Thursday
 I hope your day is full of happiness and blessings!
Hugs,
Olivia
