Riddle Me This...

What can you make with...

An old kitchen cabinet....(This was my kitchen before the remodel...Can you believe it was green?)

a pillow I made out of some remnant fabric and trim I found at a thrift store and....

a seat cushion?
Well, first you make a beautiful bench out of the cabinet... This is my hubby's handy work.
Second, you take the stuffing out of the pillow and insert the cushion to make a seat cushion for the bench.

It's reversible!
And third you put them all together and voila! I love it!
My hubby made the bench for me as a birthday gift a couple of years ago...just hadn't gotten around to making the seat cushion. It was such and easy project I really don't know why it took me so long...but it's done! Yay! One more thing to check off my list of things to do.
Thank you everyone for stopping by today.
Please come back and visit again soon.
Have a wonderfully blessed day.

Hugs and Kisses,

Hello sweet Ana... all of your creations are just beautiful! I love the pillow and seat cushion you made, and your bench your hubby made is gorgeous! I would just sit there all day with a cup of tea and a magazine... I actually liked your cabinets when they were green too! Love to you... xoxo Julie Marie PS I hope you will post more of your garden photos soon!

What a great re-do. Aren't they the best kind, cost nothing apart from sweat equity and look fabulous after. Great job, Maureen
