bench makeover {vintage gray & white stripes}


I finally made it over to the famous Britex fabric store {been in SF for over 50 years} in search for a new fabric for my floral bench.  Although I loved the floral, it just didn't work in our new space.  Roaming around Britex, I quickly realized it was out of my price range until I made it up to the 4th floor and found the bargain remnants.  Digging through a pile of vintage fabrics, I found exactly 2 yards of a gray and white stripe that would work perfect for the bench.  I was ecstatic.  I will probably have to get new pillows for the spot, but it's not in my budget right now, so these will have to do.  

You will notice on my gallery wall a small painting of a silly looking ship.  That was a practice painting I did last year.  We call it the mustache ship in our household.  You can go ahead and laugh...we do.  The gallery wall frames are in progress as of now.

Tomorrow I will post a few photographs of the inside of Britex.  Most definitely my type of eye candy!

p.s. pay no attention to our dirty floors and baseboards...probably should have photo-shopped these photos.
