up-cycled bench

during the spring/summer, i am an avid garage-sale-goer.  i despise goodwill's and thrift stores, yet i find garage sales so intriguing and exciting.  i go with no specific goal in mind and often leave empty-handed.  however, this one particular day last summer, i spent my saturday afternoon bouncing from garage sale to garage sale in hopes of finding a weekend project.  much to my excitement, i found this amazing bench, completely neglected and begging for a caring owner.
my design wheels started spinning and i almost immediately knew the perfect fix for this sad bench.  a few coats of spray paint, a new,upholstered bench and a splash of chevron later, i had a new piece of furniture that i will forever cherish (all for under $20, mind you).
i cannot for spring and the re-emergence of garage sale-ing glory.  until then, i will bask in the sunny-ness of my re-imagined bench.
