Angels Are Everywhere-Even Where I Sit

You know,
I thought I did a post about
this before but I am 
darned if I can find it
and somehow it quick posted
for a few minutes the other day..
duhhhh.....
Just call me blond...
or Diana- or-whatever suits your fancy.

If  you read this before I apologize...
Ummmm...sorry!!!!

Here's the fabric-
Here's the original bench-
Purty, huh????
First I removed the seat 
and recovered it with the above fabric.

Next I applied an applique from 
Home Depot
to the back using wood glue.
This is not the exact applique but it is close.
After applying that I painted
the whole thing semi-gloss black.
After it was dry I used some 
metallic buffer to highlight
the raised designs and the top of
the back.
Notice how the design looks like
Angel Wings?
I wonder if I sit on it I would
get MORE ANGELIC than
I already am!.....
Ummm....THAT was a joke.....
(trust me)
Someone told me last night
that I wasn't really a devil
because I had a halo sitting on
my horns.
I never heard that before...
did you?
Have a great Thursday!

  5. What a beautiful redo, Diana! I love that gorgeous cherub fabric. Maybe you could use it as a time out chair for your Hero?!

  8. Good Afternoon Diana, I love the addition of the "halo wings". Cherubs are a favourite of mine, so I adore your fabric. The stool looks lovely.

  16. So glad you got the water leak taken care of! I missed ya!
    The bench was purty ugly till ya worked some magic on it. The last touch of the metallic color on the vintage scroll made it just pop!!
    Angel decor and such is so sweet it just adds a soft touch.
    Blessings, Roxy

  20. Love it!

    I've used that expression many, many times. I tell my nieces their halo is held up by their horns all the time! LOL!!!

  21. They are what holds your halo on...goofy girl. Love the bench. If you get tired of it, send it my way. Being a really good girl, I could use a throne. LOL

  22. Seeing this sweet makeover reminds me that I have a sewing table chair that I've set aside. I plan on copying the chair you did for one of your granddaughters and pass it off as my own idea. Kidding! I'll copy it and give you credit for the genius.

  30. I've never read it before, so it must be new ('cause I have read everything you have ever written in your entire life!). You did a great job on the transformation. The fabric is beautiful. Just don't squash the angels when you sit down.

  31. Diana, Love what you did to that chair! Do you think that you might become more angelic by sitting on it? Have a wonderful afternoon my friend!

  32. Love your bench! What a difference! It doesn't hurt to try and see if sitting there would make you more Angelic. At least it would keep you out of trouble for a while. Wink, wink! xoxo

  33. I think I have seen it before or something simular but it is a lovely chair and I don't mind seeing it twice.

  51. LOVE IT. Is this not an old piano bench? I see these often and think about grabbing one but not at the prices I have seen. I'll wait for yard sale time. I love this fabric you chose.

    Ahem.. now, after the dog, truck caption post... hehehe... maybe just a minute or two in your lovely chair would be good. :)
