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.
Then I had a brainwave! This fabric that my parents came across a few months ago would be perfect!
A few staples with my trusty electric staple gun, and it was done.
