Patio Benches

2 Materials
2 Hours
Learned a day prior that I had a Ladies Coffee to give for my small church group. Frantically went around house to freshen rooms up. Weather in Phoenix was condusive to use my front Patio. But it was bleak and bare. I had some old benches in garage. One I took from my daughter's trash. Cleaned them up. Used a little paint I had to touch up. Pulled out bits & pieces of fabrics. Went to Good Will and bought cheapest throw pillows they had for $1@. Altogether spent about $15. Had to sew
different fabrics together on some to make a case to cover. Looks even more creative! I used an end table I had in back yard. Placed a basket of flowers on it. Placed benches facing each other other for easy conversation. The ladies loved sitting outside for our coffee on
a beautiful day with these colorful benches! Other company have enjoyed my 2 hour makeover as well. Love to sew,so easy pizy!
