  • Telephone Bench Upholstery Project by Magdalena

    December 30, 2009 by Britex Fabrics

    Magdalena, a Canadian customer, emailed us this project that she completed with Britex Fabrics. She bought this telephone bench for $5 at a community garage sale during the summer. Her boyfriend sanded and re-finished all the wood while she (very successfully!) attempted her first upholstery job. They knew they wanted something fun and colorful, but had a really hard time finding the right fabric. On a recent trip to San Francisco, while delighting in wandering the city, they found themselves in Britex fabrics and discovered this owl inspired print on the shelves…”the rest is history.”
