In our house, we have plenty of storage for toys so, I decided to turn this old toy box into a cute bench for our porch. This project was really very simple.
•Basically, I just sanded the dings out of it.
•Then I painted it. Let the paint dry and then painted it again. It actually got 3 coats of paint total.
•Lastly, I painted a clear coat of varnish over the bench. The varnish will help preserve the paint and help the paint to not chip.
Honestly, I hardly know how to use my sewing machine but, making a pillow or a large cushion like this one, is one of the easiest things that you can sew. First, I literally prayed because, I have to pray before I sew-I'm just that bad at it, and then I sewed the cushion. It was super easy.
My brilliant sister came up with the idea for the buttons on the cushion and those were hand sewed on, once the cushion was finished.
So yes, it's true-some of the best things in life are free.
Have a HAPPY day.
