ART WORK & A PROJECT!!!


This is the story of my cute little bench that I picked up...Not much to look at....

 but give it a coat of primer
 a couple coats of color
 Get to spend the evening painting...which I loved....(don't mind the pic....I was into it and was not about to pretty myself up after running and painting and taking the kids to the park..:))

Finish her off, and distress her a little........




And here you get my "two is better" bench....I love it! Now I have to decide how much to ask for it...? I never know these things.

Have a beautiful day!!

Thanks so much everyone! Now if I could just find MORE of these benches. I got this one dirt cheap at a thrift shop (it was homemade) and now I am on the lookout constantly for others like this.

Love this bench, so bright and cheery !! before you put a price on it, take some measurements, go to the lumber store buy some boards, a hand saw and some screws..make yourself up a couple. not difficult with a model to go by and I am sure you would enjoy.))

Thanks so much Cassie...Do you have the button code so I can add it with my other buttons. I am new at this and am still learning to navigate this whole thing. :) I would love to add your button since you have been so so sweet...:)

You are so talented! I love painted furniture, but there's no way I could paint more than a stick figure on it--not pretty! :) I just adore the green color too.
