IT'S A.....

Here's the whatchacallit redo! Two coats of white paint, sanding and natural muslin seat covers.  DONE!
  I read the "numerous" comments (where is everyone?)  Great ideas, I must say....  Thank you for taking the time to brainstorm with me!
 When I purchased this weird piece, I thought it was confessional seating and I'm not Catholic!  What do I know?
I was told this piece is a KISSING BENCH.  What?  The couple needs extra long necks and forget embracing while smooching!  Giggle.

For now, it rests at the foot of our bed.  It's better suited for putting on socks rather than kissing, but I love the novelty of this bench.
 I envisioned it in front of our fireplace, but it's over 100 degrees in Los Angeles, so maybe it will find it's way downstairs to the fireplace when we have cooler weather.
(Even though my husband dislikes this bench, I saw him sitting on it the other day!)

Love the kissing seat. I have never seen one like it before,but I think it looks perfect in front of your bed. And it looks beautiful in white. It's awesome. If you add a pretty pink flower pot in the center it will look gorgeous too. Just picturing it..lol
Thanks for sharing. I love your blog.
Hugs,
Janet

lol it's not a kissing bench! It's a fireplace fender seat w/ surround! I'm 100% certain of this. Because, really, look how far apart the seats are....you'd never be able to even get close enough to actually kiss each other! ;D

I love it! You did a remarkable job of making it over. It fits the bottom of your bed like it was made for it. xo Diana
