Summer has officially arrived in the Burke household. Oh the joys of being teachers. Three months of bliss. Now that we're somewhat free, I thought I'd at least update the blog!
This mini makeover occurred a few months ago, but has yet the grace the pages of the internet.
Evan and I wanted a bench for our odd little kitchen nook, so we hunted one down in our favorite store, Craigslist. We came across this cutie and thought she could use an update.
Those odd floral butt pads had no cushion whatsoever, so the comfort factor had to be improved, not to mention the fabric reminded me of the embroidered purse my grandma had in her closet.
Thankfully my mother in law has a stockpile of fabric. We picked out a gray-ish pattern that was once used for curtains and got to work.
First, we cut the foam using a turkey knife. Seriously, it works so well.
We also didn't want the separate butt pads, so we just covered the whole thing. Made so much more sense to me!
