Vanity Bench DIY Furniture Paint Makeover (and Quilts!)

Happy Sunday! Did you have a good 4th of July weekend? It officially feels like summer and I'm trying to swim in the pool everyday for exercise. The pool has been self heating with a solar cover since I removed 3 giant ficus trees. The trees had to go! The roots were ruining the concrete.

Remember that 'plain jane'  vintage vanity bench I shared a couple days ago? Well, here it is, all made over and pretty.

I took that little gal with the sweet cabriole legs, sanded and painted and sanded a little more to distress it. After coating it with polyurethane, it was almost done. The only thing left to do was upholster the removable top with some new fabric.
Sanded!


Primed!
New Fabric Stapled On!

Even the inside got painted and the lid got lined with fabric using spray adhesive!


Here she is in all her glory, a sweet little vanity bench re-do!!! Now this vintage furniture is gorgeous again.


In other crafty news, I also wanted to share a couple quilts from my class this week.

Rosanne made this fine table runner. All ready for the patriotic holiday!
 Linda finished her scrappy quilt. She used scraps from many projects over the years and this brings back lots of memories of her past sewing endeavors.
Thanks to the sewing class ladies for letting me share their fine work. Keep on creating my friends!


Thanks for visiting the Sunset Coast. I'd love some new followers on Bloglovin' or Google Friend Connect. 
What amazing things are you working on this week? Leave me a comment and a link so I can visit you too, bloggers!


Have a Blissful Day!
Cindy
