Sometimes when I’m making over something or repurposing and looking for fabric I always keep clothing in mind too as it can be a great resource and you can find things for a couple dollars when you’re thrift shopping or yard saling.

When I found this little piano bench it was white with a roses n floral print cover.

So when I redid our bathroom on a budget I looked to what I had.  I painted this black with paint we had in the house.  I found this darling animal print skirt at a thrift store for $3 and cut it open and the side seam was already there.

You can see the roses print here.  I then wrapped the animal print fabric over it and stapled it on.

You know I’m seeing a layer of burlap under that roses print that may have to be considered when this get’s the next makeover….lol.

I also used some more of the fabric left to add trim to some hand towels and a border to the little drapes too.

And that’s how I gave my vanity bench a little makeover with an animal print skirt.  Total cost to me was $3.  I use it everyday when I get ready too.  I mean us older girls need to take our time to get beautiful right?  or at least some of us…lol.
