Reupholstering a bench


This past week, I found a really cool vintage bench at the thrift store. It had a badly scratched leather top, but still looked cool and had potential. I'm not a stranger to reupholstering furniture, so I decided to take it home. I decided that it would look really cool if the worn leather on top was replaced with a tooled leather panel. So, that is just what I did! I opted for a repetitive tribal pattern that took 3 days to tool, as the panel itself is 2 ft. square. But, all the time was well worth it. The bench looks gorgeous with the new covering. What do you think?
