I have been absolutely dying for a bench like Shannon’s at Fox Hollow Cottage. I have been looking for one to paint myself, and finally found one…right in my son’s bathroom. Do you ever have one of those “Duh!” moments? I was cleaning his bathroom last week and when I went to dust his bench, I was like… Duh!!! I can paint this bench! Of course, I cleared it with him first…he could care less what furniture he has in his bathroom, as long as he has somewhere to keep his stuff. So, out came the bench! Yay for me!!!
Here is Shannon’s bench, my inspiration…
Isn’t it gorgeous? Just to die for? Don’t you just NEED it?
You have to jump over to her blog, Fox Hollow Cottage to get a better look, and see all of the other fabulousness that goes on over there…I promise…AMAZEMENT! Plus, she is super sweet!
Here is what I started with…
And here is what I ended up with…
Mine is a beachy blue, which matches my home’s decor a little more than aqua. I started out by painting it white, then painted a coat of blue on top of that. I sanded and distressed it a little before rubbing on a coat of wax.
I just love it…is makes me want to get in my car and drive to the beach right
Do you have a bench to redo?
