Re-vamped Entry Bench

Our entry bench was a bargain from Target, purchased 2 years ago. I always had a plan to do something with it, but was content with it for now. Finally 1 night I had enough of looking at the 'Cat Scratch Fever' and decided it was time to do the something.
I really liked the tufting, and wanted to do something similar, but wasn't sure how I'd figure that one out so I went to JoAnn's and found some furry white fabric - perfect in a house with a white dog, gray cat, and orange cat that like to lay on the bench, and it's just fun! It's super furry so if they decided to scratch you couldn't tell at all - and if they lay on it it just fluffs back up. I at first thought I'd glue gun it on - not sure what I was thinking because that was a stupid idea! I then got smart and got out the staple gun - so easy!
Pulled and tucked and ta-da! 15 min makeover. The kids love it!
But, something wasn't right, I still wasn't happy with it.
The legs needed to be painted! Wish I would have thought of that before I covered the seat because painting around the fluff was super tricky - good thing they are both white! I did a light sand, then primed with Behr primer.

{This is what happened when I went out of the room for a second!}
{on the new rug.. it's a good thing it can be flipped over}
{the culprit!}
Got it cleaned up, then back to painting...
Once the primer dried I used Behr ultra high gloss white paint. I painted it on with my free roller from Valspar
I like this much better!
It really balances the room now. So easy, I love it!
