Hotel Perrin Freezer Paper Transfer Mudroom bench Makeover

The Humble Brag Link Party

Good Morning my Beauties. Thank you so much for sticking around even though
I was gone on vacation. We had a wonderful time, even with the devastating news of
loosing not one but 2 loved ones while we were gone.
Today I will be heading to the funeral for my great nephew Ethan.
You can read his story HERE

But as they say life goes on and I had to get back to work.

I was able to find this beat up old bench type thing and decided it would make a great mud room bench.

I mixed up some custom CeCe Caldwell's paint and painted the outside a yellow green and the inside
a creamy yellow.

I wanted to give it a little extra flavor so I went on over to the Graphics Fairy
and used my freezer paper transfer method to transfer on
a really cute HOTEL graphic.
You can see how to do a freezer paper transfer HERE

I thought it added the perfect little vintage POP that this piece needed.

I hope you enjoyed this makeover.
I want to thank each and everyone of you for your
thoughts and prayers. It meant so much to me
that you guys went out of your way to send
such sweet little notes and emails.
You are all so BEAUTIFUL to me and mean so much.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Your design work is lovely, as always, Karin :) I read yesterday about the loss of Ethan, and signed your post. I'm so sorry.

Good to see you at the GF Party.

Oh, this piece turned out wonderful. I have never used CeCe Caldwell paint. I need to find a distributor near me.

And thanks for the freezer paper tutorial. I will be trying it soon.

so sorry for your family's loss, but Ethan is happy,and healthy now with Jesus. That doesn't help with the emptiness, but it does give us hope.
Love your bench. So cute the way you painted it!
