What's old is new again...

I bought this little bench several years ago. It was painted white and had a truly awful tapestry fabric on the seat. When I set out to recover it I found the above retro print under the tapestry and I loved it! I painted it a gray/ green and I have been happy with it since...until the last few months. I just felt it needed a change...an update...
I am very pleased with the end result. It feels bright, clean, and new and I kept the same color paint. It's amazing how a small amount of 50% off fabric can bring a new feel to a piece of furniture. Now that it is tucked back safely in the bathroom, I have hopes to recover my precious rocking chair and make a new pillow for it as well. That is my project for the next couple of days. This pregnancy is making me want to redo and freshen up everything to get ready for the new baby. I hope I can get it all done!
