I've got a Gossip Girl~

Craigslist has been keeping me busy. 
I found this Gossip Bench that's been occupying my time.

Here's how my Gossip Girl looks now!

Here's what she looked like before~
The sellers picture

I brought her home, 
cleaned her up with a mixture of water and vinegar.

Painted her black and reupholstered her seat.

I used my Cricut Home Decor cartridge
and made these Fleur-de-lis'

I found this fabric for the seat at Hobby Lobby.

I'm loving silhouettes lately and used this template from Country Living for the Gossip Girl.

I cut the Gossip Girl out on Contact Paper
 (I use this for cut outs on my Cricut ~ not the expensive stuff they sell)

If this Gossip Girl could talk ~ I'm sure she'd have a lot to tell! 


  1. It turned out amazing Marcy!
    I absolutely love it!

  2. Oh wow it DID turn out great! I recieved the Ferris Wheel and it is too fun. Thank you soooo much. I will blog about it today, pop in while the paint is drying on your next project.

  3. WOW!
    She is gorgeous!
    I LOVE that paisley fabric- I must go see if we have it here at our Hobby Lobby!
    Smart to use contact paper for Cricut!
    Why didn't I think of that??
    Great makeover!
    Blessings to you today!

  4. Love the way yo spruced up the Gossip Bench. Huge improvement!
