Reupholstered Piano Bench Makeover

 I can’t even believe that I let this piano bench sit in my basement for two years before doing something with it…

For two years I let it go untouched.  What in the world took me so long??

Well, actually I know what took me so long.  I was a little intimidated at the idea of reupholstering the seat cover.  I’ve never reupholstered anything before, and I was convinced that it must be much harder than it actually was.

When I found this piano bench at Goodwill (say it with me now) two years ago, I thought it had tons of potential.  It was only $7.00, so I figured even if I completely botched it, it wouldn’t be a huge loss.

About two weeks ago, I was meandering down the aisles of Rural King (Why do I feel slightly embarrassed to admit I was in Rural King?  I don’t know.  I need to get over that.  Rural King has amazing supplies for a girl with an eye for rustic style. And they have free popcorn.  Just sayin’.)

Anyway, while I was munching on my free popcorn, I found this bin of giant burlap bags for $1.50.  Can you even believe that?!  I still can’t.

As soon as I saw this burlap bag, the idea to finally reupholster and paint the old piano bench came full circle.  I followed this tutorial on how to reupholster a bench seat.

I won’t say that I nailed my first reupholstery project, but I’m pretty pleased with the results.

Alright, so what do you think?  Old, boring piano bench turned into a rustic-chic gem?  I believe so. 😉
