Frenchy Bench Revamp

I  purchased this small vanity bench with great lines but worn fabric.
 The fluted legs and the color sold me.  I knew I could transform it.

Here she is in her original condition.

The modern fabric on the bench was totally the wrong design.  I removed the old fabric and foam.

Modern fabric on frenchy bench---nooooooo.

There were only four screws holding on the top.  It was easy to get down to the wood top.  I added new foam before adding the new fabric.  I re-attached the top.

Since the bench had hints of yellow I chose this Robert Allen chinoiserie fabric.

This is what the new top of the bench looks like.

I also added cording which I made in a coordinating fabric.

This is the completed vanity bench.

What do you think about the transformation?
