New Rug Hooking Project...


My latest find from my local used furniture store...
A sweet little bench with a drawer !


This bench may not look like much...



But with some sanding and a new coat of paint,
it will be ready for some wooly goodness...



The best part is, (the reason I purchased this bench), 
there is a top insert that lifts off.  This insert was originally covered in some very old plastic type vinyl, which I removed.



I am dreaming of Rug Hooking designs to cover the insert that lifts off.
The Bench measures 24in. long x 14in. wide x 17in. high.
(60.96cm x 35.56cm x 43.18cm)

  6. whatever it will become, it will be beautiful!
    Love all the wool color combinations. Once hooked a little heart, and I decided, I better stick with dollmaking.
    Have a beautiful Sunday,
