the piano bench

Do you recognize this little piano bench? 



I bought it from a thrift store last year for $5.00 looking like this...


Not very cottagey looking that's for sure but a little blue paint and some bargain basement polka dotted fabric totally transformed it into this pretty little side table.


Never one to leave well enough alone, now it's Martha Stewart Cornbread Yellow.


I know I've said it before but I think this is my favorite so far.

Till the next time I'm sure. :)

  1. I love it in the yellow and of course you perfectly have the fabric topped off with that darling pillow. I am going to e-mail you about getting together with another blogger.

    I love the paint color name also. Cornbread yellow ~ yum.
