This bench was sitting in my brother's garage and didn't fit his family's decorating style. I asked if I could have it back in 2003. Bought three outdoor cushions at an 'end of the season' sale at a local store. Why are cushions so expensive?
I tried to live with the dark wood, but it didn't fit my hospital white look. So at some point I painted it white, had blue denim slipcovers made for the cushions as well as for some old pillows I had on hand. Two or so years ago while in the Hamptons I bought a blue and white throw which I draped over the cushions and back of the bench. I use table cloth weights on the portion that hangs off the back to keep the throw from slipping down when someone sits on it.
I love this bench because I can stretch out and take a nap. Since the picture above was taken I have hung drapes on my screen porch for privacy. More pics of the screen porch soon.
Don't forget to take the survey in the sidebar.Thanks for stopping by...
