Awhile back, we got an old desk from my sister in law. We figured Blake could use it. It was over a year ago, and while I kept on the lookout for a decent chair to redo, I never really found anything. I was browsing through one of the Better Homes & Gardens magazine I have, you know, like the 100 Decorating Ideas Under $100 types? I saw where they had used a small upper cabinet to make a bench. And then I had an idea. I thought I could do something similar, and make Blake a seat. Lucky me, Mike is in the cabinet business. So I started with this:
We added some primer...
Then some black paint to fit in with the Star Wars them we're trying to go for. His room is grey & blue, and his bedding is black, blue, grey & orange.
I originally added batting, but decided I didnt like it, it was too thick.
I removed it, and here you go!
