A mini reveal

Tomorrow I am off to Santa Barbara for the weekend. I've never been there before and absolutely cannot wait. If you have any recommendations, please share!! And while I am gone I have a couple VERY lovely ladies who are going to be visiting.

But before I left, I wanted to share my bench that is newly recovered!

First, this is how it used to look:
Does it get more 80s then this? I think this pattern was the 80s version of ikat. Ew.

Anyways, here it is now: 

Doesn't look like much does it...?

But then you see it up close:

And maybe through my bad iPhone pictures, you see that it is actually navy blue velvet and tufted!!!

And from far away, it looks very purdy too
Next week, I'll take some daytime pictures so you can really see. But I wanted to share, since I promisedddd I would!

Have a great weekend pumpkins. xoxo
