Do you ever just want a change?? I know I sure do!! Last week I really wanted to make some changes around the house and of course didn’t want to spend much. I decided to brighten up my living room with some new updated material.
My first course of action was to recover the hope chest.
This is a simple procedure. Here’s what you do:
Open the chest and remove the screws holding the cushion in place. My hope chest only had four screws to remove.
You can choose to either cover the existing material or remove it and use all new. I chose to just cover what was already there.
As you can see I have recovered this several times over the years.
Using a staple gun, pull the material tight and start stapling from the center, outward.
Then just screw the cushion back to the hope chest and you have beautiful, new, fresh look!
Now the question…To paint or not to paint??? What do you think…should I paint the hope chest??
PS… I did end up painting my hope chest… You can see that post HERE.
