Before + After: Gossip Bench

As a wedding gift, my grandmother gave us this antique gossip bench she got at an antique auction near their South Georgia home.  I love the color of the wood and how unique this piece is - and not to mention how I will always think of my grandmother when I look at it.  The only thing that needed a little updating was the fabric on the seat.  It was a weird faux leather with a floral pattern.

This was an easy fix and a quick update!  I picked up some fabric from Joann's (that I was originally going to use on our dining room chairs - more on that later...) and went to work.  This is how the little darling looks now...

It's the perfect addition to this little corner in our house.  I'm sure I'll change up the fabric again at some point, but for now I'm really liking this pop of red ikat!  Here is a closer look at the fabric...

Recovering the seat of a chair or ottoman is an easy way to bring new life to a piece of furniture and it's cheap!
The DIY bug must have bit me this weekend because I did a few more projects around the house and can't wait to share them with y'all!  Have you guys been up to any fun DIY's?
