Here is my bench- which you have seen before,
this time with some warm winter cushions that I upcycled from knitted items.
Lots of people were fascinated by them, at first wondering if I had knitted them myself,
I then had to explain that I made them from previously knitted items.
I showed you this chair before, well actually there were two the same.
I debated whether or not to treat them as a pair or do them different, I chose different.
The first one I painted white and put a cute navy and white postage fabric on the seat.
The second I painted red and used this cute aqua floral for the seat.
I actually sold both to a young man after he sent photos to his girlfriend at work.
I also had a lady who really loved the red but wanted two,
she emailed me to see if they sold since the market.
I will have to see if I can get some more and do them up for her.
Remember this coffee table that was originally all black- here it has already been painted.
This is how it looked when I had finished with it.
I took this photo the night before the market, I had been meaning to do so all day but just didn't get there, so the light is not fantastic.
It wasn't a cheap project to do, the foam was very expensive and I used a good indoor/outdoor fabric that I had in my stash from Fabric Traders.
I was a bit worried about selling it because it was going to be quite expensive, so I didn't put my usual mark- up on it, but it turned out to be the first thing that sold on the day, to a neighbouring stall holder.
It sat there in my stall until the end of the markets and I had lots of inquiries about it
- so I really probably could have charged more!
I am hoping to be back tomorrow with a recipe.
