New Fabric for My Piano Bench

July 10, 2014 by 59 Comments

The other day Little B and I went to Hobby Lobby in search of New Fabric for My Piano Bench.  As much as I like white, this seat is not machine washable and after many years of use, its looking overly loved.  Time for a quick DIY update!

Above, did you notice the WiFi booster plugged in by the piano?  Read why I love it (here).  Now back to that piano update — before heading out, I measured the bench — it takes 5/8 of a yard of my favorite fabric(s).  We had trouble limiting it to a couple — so we picked up a some of my favorites and some of Little B’s favorites — a total of five to bring home and try in the room.  Lucky day, fabrics were on sale!

I have my favorite and Little B has hers — which fabric do you think works best in the living room!?!  Small print or large print?  Cream, White, Black, or Gray?  Opinions!?!?

On the couch I still have my light pink pillow covers, but they won’t be staying long — I’m ready for a change!!!  They’ll make an appearance again around Easter.

Okay, one last time — which is your favorite fabric for my piano bench!?!  1 – 2 – 3 – 4 – 5

  1. I love the butterflies!! So sweet and simple.

  2. Sandy says:

    I love five with the dark wood of the piano.

  3. Nancy says:

    My choice would be 2. Fresh and updated look.

  4. Jane B says:

    1st choice is #1 the butterflies! That choice adds a little pop and a surprise to the room so I just love it. I’m betting a dime that is your B’s favorite too 😉
    I know you didn’t ask, but my 2nd choice would be #5…

  5. Patty says:

    Number 2…sofa pillows in same fabric!

  6. Lisa Archer says:

    I like 4. I think it blends with your other colors and patterns.

    Keep going with the rug colors. You will change many things about this room but the rug, NOT AS OFTEN!

  8. Betty says:

    Five! Hands down!

  9. Love #5! Brings the lightness of the room and the dark wood of the piano together. Such a cute living room!

  10. The grey would match the rug and would not clash with other accents in the room such as your pillows, books, lamps and decor. Anything “loud” may be a problem in the future.

  11. Hilary says:

    I love the butterflies! The black and white is so graphic and unique!

  12. Phyllis says:

    Love love love #2

  13. Ralinn says:

    2 and 4. I “think” two ties in better with the rug. I don’t think 1 or 5 work well. I could be wrong. Could you make a slip cover instead and change it out periodically? That way you and B can both have your choice.

  14. Denise says:

    #2 is my fav!!

  15. Nicole says:

    I’m feeling like the second one is the winner – I love that it is similar to your area rug without being the same – and the scale being large on a small piece makes it fun.

    that’s my 2 cents for you! but, I’ll say that really, there is no wrong answer!

  16. Lydia Wagner says:

    I’m pretty sure Anna & I picked the best one!! 😉

  17. pamela murphy says:

    Love #2 & 3 :)

  18. Jillian says:

    They are all so pretty, but for the piano bench, I really like the butterflies or number three. I enjoyed looking through some of your posts today, this is the first time I have visited “It’s overflowing”, from House of Rose link party and I will be sure to check back again soon! :)

  19. Aimee says:

    You both liked #3?!? Is that right Lydia?!?

  20. Diana says:

    Aimee, I like # 4 it blends best with the rug and pillows on the sofa.

  21. I like #5 the best but they’re all great! :)

  22. Donna says:

    I like #5

  23. SM Edens says:

    # 5 — not trendy like the others :)

  24. Cheri says:

    I like #2 or #4. Good luck.

  25. krista says:


  26. Leila says:


  27. I have an old piano very similar to that! :) The bench didn’t come with fabric though. So the grand kids just banged it up a bit more than it already was :)

  28. Kathleen says:

    I like #5 it goes well with the rug and does’t compete.

  29. I will say 4 ! It looks so natural with the piano with it, and match your walls

    I am curious what u have decided

  30. Sallie says:

    #5- it makes me think of musical notes!

  31. Angela says:

    #2 looks awesome! #4 is my 2nd choice. 😉

  32. Jennifer says:


    #5 was my first choice just looking at the fabric. But, when I saw them with the piano and bench, I quickly changed to #4!

  33. Victoria Bonnett says:


  34. Marybeth says:


  35. Stephanie says:

    #4 would be my first choice, followed by #5. They are all pretty options though!

  36. Teresa says:

    2 is my first choice -second choice

  37. pam h. says:


  38. Number 2 hands down.

  39. valarie says:


  40. 2nd matches the rug and pillows better than others but I personally liked 5th one which is the most interesting fabric among all.

  41. Lori says:


  42. Chrissy says:

    As much as I love a Greek Fret I’m going to have to say 2 for this space! :)

  43. Heidi says:

    I have always really liked #3 when I’ve seen it on pillows, but I think #4 looks best on your piano bench.

  44. Mrs Mike says:

    5!! I think it transitions the the dark on the piano bench and the dark stain on the piano nicely. And now I “need” to see if my Hobby Lobby has that print as well, lol…

  45. Tracy says:

    Love the #5. Very classy.

  46. Pamela Bolton says:

    #2 or #4, in that order.

  47. Cindy says:

    #1. Butterflies all the way.

  48. Melody says:

    I like 4.

  49. nancy zoleta says:

    Why not do a slip cover in white for the piano bench that way you can always take it off and wash it. if not #2 and #4 is nice it matches your pillow, rug and wall color.

  50. Tiffany says:


  51. Barbara (WA) says:

    I am liking #4 (but I bet Little B chose #1!)

  52. Linda C in Seattle says:

    Love the design of # 3.

  53. Tricia says:

    One and two!

  54. Gerri says:

    I love your style and I love the fabric’s you pick. Where do you go to find them?

    • Aimee says:

      Thanks Gerri! Time has been lacking lately so I made one stop at Hobby Lobby and found all of these fabrics!!! XO, Aimee
