I'm notorious for accumulating dumpster dive furniture and stockpiling scrap fabrics in hopes of having a spare second to refurbish them into fresh pieces to incorporate into my space. See how I transformed this found piano bench with a hand printed texture below!

I mixed my own shades of trendy paint colors with standard colors from the craft store...use contrasting hues to print fabrics for upholstery projects, zipper pouches or pillows! I have a few scraps left over I can't wait to create a quilted pillow with!

I found this great piano bench on the side of the street in Brooklyn and held onto it for five years until I had the PERFECT DIY project to give it new life and purpose! Simply add a stack of your favorite magazines, a succulent in a fun pot and a hot cup of coffee to complete your cozy little nook!

    I don't know if you are old enough to remember Vera, who was a famous fabric designer, most notable for her sheets, but she would have loved this!
