Back in the fall when I read this post on Design Sponge about a great telephone table make over I was determined to find one to makeover myself. I searched all the thrift and antique shops in Hamilton and finally found one. It wasn't cheap but it's from the 70s and the wood is in perfect condition. Because of this, and the fact that the upholstery is a little more complex, that telephone bench is sitting in my front hall at home untouched. I can't seem to commit to a colour or a fabric. The weekend after I found that bench, I went to the Aberfoyle Flea market and found another bench for only $5. The wood was in horrible shape and it was upholstered in a dusty rose corduroy. I wish I had taken a before picture. I decided to put this bench at the studio and it has sat painted white but still not reupholstered for months. I finally got around to upholstering it in patchwork of my screen printed remnants.
