Introduction: Groovey Bench

I found this bench on a local website in my home town. Loved it the minute I saw it..Oh boy another great project to work on I though. 
Been born in the 60's I grew up with all the 70's looking furniture and it was fantastic. 
I decided to make some changes.

First: I removed the screws from the sitting part 4 screws not so hard

Second: Took all the buttons from the cushion as you can see the material is all loose.

Third: Started removing the dusty sandy mustard material from the cushion. It took me two long
days removing a million staples. Make sure you take your time and use good tools to remove those hard to get staples.

Fourth: Cleaned the cushion and set it aside to re-covered  with a cool Zebra material
I sanded and used a spray primer for the entire bench.

Fifth: Once dry from the primer paint, I used a Silver spray paint. I sprayed it evenly back and forth not to close to the wood that way it won't make a mess with to much paint.

Six: Re-covered the cushion with my awesome Zebra black & white material

Seven: Proceed to screw the sitting cushion to the bench with my 4 screw and enjoyed my lovely bench today.

    really nice job! When in doubt, animal prints always work!

    Pretty! My husband and I reupholstered a computer chair once and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Maybe I should do more reupholstering :)

    Way cool. I like to do more reupholstery but sometimes I think I can get over my head. Some of the projects requires tools I don't have and material can be very costly. I just work on the things I can so far so good. One day I hope to take a class at a college so I can learn more about reupholstery.
    Have an awesome day.
