I have sweet friends that offer me their old stuff before it goes to Goodwill, or a garage sale etc. They know usually I will take it. So here was my latest gift, a bamboo bench with a nice covered cushion.
It was in great shape so it did not need any repairs. Actually it was just fine the way it was, but I couldn't just leave it alone. I popped the cushion off and recovered it in my favorite, burlap. Then I had to prime then paint the bamboo a satin black color. Those parts did take a long time because of the bamboo and it's texture. It turned out great. I put it in my booth, and it sold the next day! So today I am taking my sweet friend to lunch, maybe she will have some other cast offs lol!
