Bench Re-do

We bought a bench on craigslist to use in our kitchen.  Now that Jack isn't in a highchair anymore, we didn't have enough chairs for everyone to sit in.  You know, when we have all of our sweet, seamless family dinners each night.  (In reality?  D, H, & J eat in about 38 seconds and are off, while Chris and I eat together.  Whatever.  It's the thought that counts.)  The bench was a great deal, was very close to the same wood we have in our table and chairs, and was sturdy.  The only negative?  It was hideously ugly. Like, straight out of a 1988 hotel lobby.  Well I can fix that.

This is what we started with.  

Really bad, right?

I used the same fabric I got for the dining room chairs, and this was the result.

I love it!  I sprayed it with approximately 11 layers of Scotch Guard in the hopes that we can keep it stain free.  If not, the fabric was ridiculously inexpensive and can always be recovered.
