HAVE A SEAT (AND SOME STORAGE)

My twelve year old niece told me that she wanted a stool for her room that also had storage in it.  Talk about music to a DIYer's ear.  Woo Hoo.  I had actually picked up a bench way back in the summer time.  It had been sitting out in my garage, wondering why I had abandoned it.





It was a genuine pleather bench, with half a piece of glass screwed into the bottom (don't ask me why).  I grabbed some of the self stick paper that I had used to cover my light fixtures



to line the bottom of the stool.  Then I debated on what kind of material to use.  It was pretty small piece and I ADORE Abby Sue's tweety bird chair



So I decided to do the bench in the same material.  I chose a really royal blue colour and went to work.  Of course, I did it on the white rug, all over my christmas present (our new couch)


It's hard to tell where the blue fur landed, but believe me, it WAS EVERYWHERE!!

Anyways, about an hour and a whole pack of glue sticks later, this is what I finished.


I sprayed it with hairspray, to stop the excess material from blowing all over the place.  I really hope she likes it - considering that is all I got her for Christmas.  Ooops

Merry Christmas everybody.  Happy holidays and time off for projects!
