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.
