I've made my first ever Craigslist purchase! For just $25, I am now the proud owner of this delightfully vintage gossip bench!
Judging by the fabric, it was reupholstered (not well) around the 80's. And, if you couldn't figure it out- I'm most certainly reupholstering it and refinishing the wood. Paint vs. stain is TBD: I need to assess the repairs it needs first. It has a few cracks and the back is loose, but still in good condition overall. I can't wait to refinish this- the finished product is going to be stellar! It may find a place in our house (possibly bedroom) or get sold after its finished. Either way, it'll be a fun project to learn how to reupholster on!
