This outdated 1970’s telephone bench needed an update…It was hard work. Good intentions don’t always equal quality outcomes…Here is what happened with my DIY 1970’s telephone bench:
Sanding wasn’t so smooth. Do not be deceived… even though this bench was made before the era of junk furniture – it is cheap. Really cheap. You find out that kind of stuff when you take a sander to wood. Thank goodness for black paint.
Still in the works but I got sick of waiting to see what it would ‘sort of’ look like
Look carefully, the inside of the ‘box’ still needs to be painted. Ugg.
So bench – from a local charity shop.
High gloss black paint – B&Q
Fabric – Ikea! Cheapest fabric ever. Ever ever.
