Style a sexy DIY Bench makeover

For a soft & romantic look in our Foyer as a wave to the beautiful Spring days ahead, I decided to style a sexy DIY Bench makeover to make it happen. How’s that for romance?

Well, I think you’re going to love these fabulous furniture makeovers I have for you today. I hope they inspire your next fun project and satisfy your need to redecorate, all at the same time.

The first thing I did was snag the faux fur rug from our teenage daughter’s bedroom. (It’s from Ikea btw)

Then after layering in a couple of different shaped pillows and the paper flower wreath, voila!

See to get that soft & romantic kind of sexy style I was shooting for wasn’t hard, at all.

And, as much as I would like to to think the white furry rug (two are shown in the photo above) would stay crisp clean white in our busy foyer; I knew better.

So, up one went onto the burlap bench! I think that’s more realistic for such a high traffic spot.

  4. This looks fantastic! And I do hop you are right and that spring is on the way! I really don’t think I can take another minute of winter :/ I like the rug on the bench to make it cozier… and I would definitely slip on it if it was on the floor. This looks so comfortable just like you styled it!!
