Street Merch Before & After- 89th & Broadway

PARTY FOUL.

This accidentally posted last night and was blaring on my reader this morning. Incomplete.
I was saving it for Monday, but oh well. Here it goes.

Found this piece outside of my apartment a while back. Not even sure what it is. A bench? A mini coffee table? And ottoman?

BEFORE:


I, unfortunately, had no space for this piece in my room. However, roommate Lindsay Ann did!
So we decided to paint to glossy white.

The Setup: A plastic trash can upside down balancing the ottoman/stool/bench thing.



Weapon of Choice: Rustoleum Primer, Rusteoleum Lacquer white paint and one of those spray paint handle things. Aaaaamazing.

Work in Progress: 1 coat of primer. 1 coat of paint. 1 coat to go.


Lindsay Ann's mom can whip up anything when it comes to fabric. She made this darling cushion to go on the ottoman/bench/stool thing.


And now, the finished product.

AFTER:





Her mom also made those shams, euros and bolster on her bed.


This is what I love about Street Merch, it's about giving furniture with a past a new & bright future. Glad we could find a home for this piece!
