It all started with a sweet headboard we found at the Whiskeag Flea Market. I had intended to make a coat rack, but then I took an upholstery class this summer. I’m not sure if I am having a love affair with furniture makeovers or the pneumatic staple gun, but either way, I’ve been going to town.

This became a family project and The Hubby scored big when he found two bureau legs at our local flea market. He built the frame of the bench with a table leaf that had lost its table. Once his carpentry bits were complete it was my turn. Webbing, foam, layers of cotton—the works. And we’re thrilled with the result. It rustic yet decidedly elegant.

The sum of its parts.
We celebrated the imperfections in our materials.
In the beginning.
At the muslin stage.
