Re-upholstered Window Seat

  
I have had this padded-top box for 20 years, and in that time I have painted the base in a wide variety of colours, and upholstered the top in many different fabrics….. Nothing stays the same for long in my house!

Most recently I painted it dark blue using the second sample pot when I was choosing the blue in my bedroom. I had covered the top in this blue and pink floral, which was a vintage curtain purchased in a Melbourne op shop 10 or so years ago.

  
It somehow just never clicked for me. I love this fabric, but it never looked right here.

Then I had a brainwave! This fabric that my parents came across a few months ago would be perfect!

   
So first I had to remove the old fabric 

 
Then cut the new piece.

   
 
The piece at the top, above the hole, was the perfect size for this project.

A few staples with my trusty electric staple gun, and it was done.

   
    
 I LOVE it! So much better than before.
