I purchased this little bench at a yard sale about three years ago. It was the perfect size to sit right in front of my couch. I don't have a coffee table due to the size of my living room, and I needed a place to set drinks and things like that. Even then, I knew I wanted to paint it turquoise. I had the perfect piece of scrap fabric that matched my living room. Finally, after the long wait and getting around to fixing it up, it is all finished. Perfect!
