The Preppy Elephant

I was recently in an antique mall where an interior designer has a booth where she sells scrap and sample fabrics. She had this pink and green sample for sale for only $1. I knew it was the perfect size to cover a chair seat.It reminded of my college days in the early 80's and the preppy style.

Then, I came across this piano bench. Another bargain at $8.75.

I knew that I could give the base of the bench a fresh coat of white paint and it would go with the fabric. But, I was hoping that I could use Limeade from The Dixie Belle Paint Company. I was thrilled when it matched perfectly!


A match made in preppy heaven!
