Leopard X Benches

If you follow me on instagram then you saw a peek of this project already.  My hubby and I had a little day date on Saturday and we ended up stopping by The Depot to looks for some fabric.  If you are ever in the Charlotte area I highly recommend stopping by there.  They have mostly antique/farmhouse style stuff, but their fabric section is the best.  They have lots of deeply discounted high end fabric remnants.  I was actually looking for fabric for another project when I came across this Braemore Jamil Natural Fabric.  

I've been wanting to cover these x benches for a while.  I don't mind the green fabric, but it limits my pillow choices in the living room and I do like to change those up pretty often.  I thought the leopard print would be a great neutral and help keep the room grounded with it's bold, rich colors.  

Here's what I started with.  I found these at Target on major clearance a few years back.  They still have similar ones in a different pattern here.  

I cut the fabric to size and actually ended up making them into slipcovers so I can revert back to the green if I want to change things up.  I actually still have enough left to make a lumbar pillow too.  I seriously may end up using this in every room in my house!  I already have it in my bedroom and love it there too.  Every room could use a touch of leopard right?

Be sure to check back Friday.  I'll be sharing my spring home tour along with some other talented bloggers.  There's sure to be lots of inspiration to get you ready for spring!
