We have this beautiful antique bench in our front entry way that was passed down to us from my husband's family. It was not very pretty when we received it so we had it recovered about five years ago to coordinate with our cranberry, sage and gold decor. Since I refreshed the entire first floor with a lighter coat of paint, the bench does not work in the space anymore.
For a really quick fix, I tried using different throw pillows and blankets but nothing really hid or diminished the pattern on this bench.
I contemplated having the bench recovered again. However, that would require spending a lot of money on something I just did a few years ago.
I also considered deconstructing the piece but that would entail a lot of time and effort. Since I wanted to make a quick fix to this bench, deconstructing it was my second choice.
So I decided to paint the upholstery fabric.
