Eddie Ross Bench: Before & After

Last week, Eddie posted this FABulous before & after project that he worked on while writing his "Weekend Shopper" column for House Beautiful.  It's so great, that I thought I would post it here too...

Eddie spotted this old bench at a flea market outside of Orlando, Florida.  It was pretty beat up, with warped seats and cracked veneer, but the frame itself was solid.  While all four seats are connected by the overall frame, each one functions independently.  A very unique find, indeed.




Eddie took it back to his studio, cleaned it up, painted it a bright white and upholstered the seats with a refreshing stripe.


And this is the end result!


How adorable is this piece for a mudroom or hallway?! It definitely inspired me to give that flea market ugly duckling a second look... and, maybe it will inspire you too. After all, it could turn it into something like this!


(By the way, that mirror is gorgeous too)

UPDATE:  If any readers are interested in a bench like this, and you live in the DC area...  there is a near identical version on Craigslist!  Click HERE!

I love talented people with vision! That is gorgeous. By the way, do you have a physical store in the Philadelphia area?
