Princess Mermaid Enchanted vanity bench-a DIY project

Fit for an Enchanted Mermaid Princess

Here’s what I’ve been working on night and day. The captain made the X bench just before he abandoned me left to my specifications for the refurbished master bath, 10Wx18Lx15H. It’s the perfect size for a princess mermaid (or short person like me). I went to JoAnn‘s Fabrics and found the material and the pearl ribbon. I made the overstuffed cushion and hot glued the pearls to the wooden bench seat prior to attaching the cushion. I had originally planned to completely encrust the entire bench with seashells, but sometimes less is more, although that’s not my mantra–mine is more is better–but for now I really love the look of the single starfish on either side.  The room is almost finished; I’ve given myself  ’til tomorrow for the project’s end because it’s time to start prepping for Thanksgiving.
