Happy Fall Y'all: Butterscotch Bench

Happy Fall Y'all! 

It's finally here and I welcome it with open arms! 

I love fall, don't you?


Well have a seat and get comfortable because I have a treat for you today:



The Monthly Furniture Themed Post! 


This month is Two Toned and I just bet on my girls having tons of inspiration to look at this month!
First up is my 
Butterscotch Bench
.

I thought it was fitting for this old headboard/footboard to get a great autumn makeover.
Surprise, surprise I know you are sick of seeing them but I have quite a few to work through.

Here is what it started out as, already yellow but definitely needed cleaning and updating (bed set third from left), oh and I have a few more in the stash.
 *hubby rolling eyes right about now*:



My six year old says it looks like a princess bed, 
MyLove thinks it looks more Spanish and to me it screams

F A L L!

The original color was a deep golden yellow which reminded me of buttersquash

pumpkin pie

and pumpkin spice. 

Everything fall and nice! 

So yellow it stays! 


It definitely needed some work and fenageling (is that a word? I think so)


I measured and cut and sanded

drilled holes and filled holes until I got it just right! 


 And even had an extra footboard piece leftover.

I couldn't let it go to waste so I made a chalkboard sign out of it! 


And some final paint details of the 
Butterscotch Bench

Now I cannot wait to see what my other friends have come up with, how about you join me and head on over to their blogs... :)

I LOVE this time of year!
Happy Fall Y'all!
