Custom Bench Makeover

 I just finished up a cute bench makeover for a Blessed Nest client… I think the bench is just amazingly cute now!  I am so pleased with how it came out and I hope our client is as well.  That being said, I don’t think we will be doing many if any custom orders in the future.  Doing custom orders while we are only able to work so few hours is difficult as it ties up the limited amount of time we do have.  I suppose if we were able to do what we love more full-time we could do more custom orders.  Time will tell. 
So here is where we began… with just a shell of a bench:
And with a little paint and some BEAUTIFUL fabric,
we have this:
I am wishing I could keep this cutie…
she is just utter sweetness!
That’s what I have been working on…how about you?
Any fun projects on your to-do list?
