Here's the plaid shirt I found, and the seat from the bench that it's going to give a whole new look to.
Repurposed Plaid Shirt Bench Makeover
I've always wanted to have some plaid in my home's decor, so when I found a fabulous plaid flannel shirt at my local thrift store recently I had a project ready for it right away.
Here's the sweet little $2 bench as I found it some time ago. I kept the thin white fabric seat covering on because it was in great shape.
I lay the seat upside down on the backside of the shirt and cut it out, leaving a good 3-4 inches all around.
Then I started stapling with my staple gun, starting in the middle on all four sides.
As I made my way stapling toward the corners, I hammered in the staples to make sure they were nice and snug.
Then I folded over and finished off the corners.
Once I was done stapling I cut away any excess fabric so the seat would sit nice and flat.
And here's my finished mad for plaid little bench with its new seat cover. It adds a touch of fun in my aqua and red kitchen.
