Remember the zebra ottoman I ordered from Walmart.com for $50?
With 2 yards of new fabric, some glossy black paint on the legs, and my dad’s help with stapling the corners, it’s now my new dining bench:
We all like it. . . .
Also, today is the last day to link up to my Coffee Talk link party. I’ll be posting some of my favorite reader coffee tables next week.

I like what you did! I just made myself a new shower curtain with the same fabric…in the “silver sage” colorway!!

Ooh, great fabric choice. And it looks the the family approves!
Looks beautiful! Wrap it in plastic wrap….your daughter looks about the same age as my three year old, who has TRASHED our recently upholstered dining chairs. I gave up and just ordered some red pleather to recover my dining chairs.
That looks great. Love the contrast of the fabric with the legs. And your sweat pea couldn’t be cuter.
Fantastic! Love a bench in the dining room. And that fabric is lovely.
Love it! I have the same bench and intend to recover it but have never done this before. Any tips? Did take pictures?

Cute! I ended up buying the same ottoman after your original post and mine is sitting waiting to be recovered. Yours turned out great.

Fantastic job!! This looks amazing!!
Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality says
Emily, love how that turned out! That was the steal of the century on that bench, lucky you.
It looks great! Now that I know it is possible, maybe mine will soon be recovered. Still sweating over fabric choices.

Hello Lover... says
Love it – great idea upholstering an inexpensive piece with some amazing fabric – looks so high end and custom!
I love it! I just found a bench in the neighbor’s garbage and want to recover it…can I ask you what kind of fabric you got? I have 3 kids and want something to be somewhat wipeable/cleanable if I put it at our table. Thanks!!
love your bench! what fabric did you use?
