New Ballard Bench

i had a couple of gc's to ballard and was trying to decide how to use them (see this post). i ended up purchasing their classic bench in the base fabric.

those are pieces of moulding (on the floor to the left) to be used in the bathroom redo. makes total sense to store them in the living room right? anyway, i plan to try my first reupholstery project and recover the bench in this fabric:

here it is jimmy-rigged with a swatch i got on ebay:

and here it is on a couple of chairs from isuwannee:

i'll be searching for some good diy upholstery posts out there on the blogosphere. please feel free to pass along any tips!

my mom just re-upholstered her dining room chairs - you should ask her what she did! they look good!
