My friend asked me to help salvage this bench for her. It belonged to her father-in-law and she really wanted something of his in her home. Something that her children could use and know that it belonged to their grandfather. Although, it's a piano bench makeover, it really won't be used as one. I was so excited to be able to help her and knew exactly where I wanted to go with it. She has 2 girls and a boy all under 4. I figured I stay neutral with the colors, although it will most likely be for the girls vanity in the bathroom. Here it is when she dropped it off for me. It had a horrible wine color vinyl on top and the bench had definitely seen better days. It was pretty banged up. I stripped it, repaired the holes, sanded it, and applied three coats of stain, and 2 of polyurethane.
