Before and After: Vanity Bench and Side Table

This little bench was the first of my projects because it was an easy re-do. I actually liked the fringe around the bottom, but it was just the wrong color.

A fresh coat of white paint and some new fabric and voila! Good as new.

I found this beauty at Goodwill and decided it would be perfect between my 2 pink chairs in my bedroom.

I love the cream color, but I can't decide if it needs to be distressed a bit. Either way, it's just the right fit.

My bedroom is shaping up quite nicely, especially with my newest treasure- the chandelier- that was gifted to me by my Kindergarten teacher, Miss Riske. She headed to California a couple of weeks ago for the Rose Bowl Flea Market (I'm so jealous!) and she knew I was looking for a chandelier so she picked one up for me. She has the best taste and knew exactly what I wanted. Thank you, thank you Ann!
