It was time to fix a project fail and turn this sad project into an upholstered piano bench. Do you ever have those projects that just don’t go right? We all do, right? This piano bench project is one of those cases.
But first, a quick question. how many benches can you find? Believe it or not, there are 5 headboard benches. Three are stacked on the left, the baby bed in the middle, and one to the right of the baby bed standing on it’s end. We store and move our benches that way, on end. They take up less room that way.
Now on with today’s project. I had a piano bench, just your every day run of the mill piano bench. Brown, nothing special. It seemed like a good idea to decoupage it with hymnal sheet music. The decoupage went well, then I brushed on some poly and that’s when things went bad. You can see in the picture below that it discolored some and made the pages look wet.
I decided to cover the lid with some fabric. To make it extra fluffy, two layers of batting were used.
It’s best to just sort of fold and pull then staple quickly. It seems that if I try really hard to make it pretty, it stresses me out, and never looks as good. I am pleased with this corner.
Because I was working on the hardwood floor, I had a sheet down to protect the lid, and the floor.
