About 2 or 3 months ago I found this patio bench at a thrift store: It was a little pricey (especially for a thrift store), I believe it was around $30/40!! I guess my frugal heart couldn't pass it up due to it's potential and now (drum roll...) the after:
Let me just say, I'm ecstatic that I broke down and spent some cash on it because I absolutely love the after! Fabric and all I invested about $60/70 which isn't bad considering what new patio furniture cost. Plus, I wouldn't trade it for new furniture any day, it's just to "me!"
