Remember that epic garage sale I told you about a few months back? I ended up buying lots of beds that day and hubby thought I was crazy to say the least!
I am happy to report that I have turned lots of them into benches and sold quite a few!
My Love is very pleased to get them out of the garage!
It was tough at first
for about a minute to paint over the little bear graphic, but once it started to take shape I was excited about the transformation.
I painted it with Annie Sloan "Antoinette" Chalk Paint. It's a sweet light pink color that looks so soft and pretty in person.
The bench seat is constructed out of brand new pine wood and stained with a home-made vinegar stain then drybrushed over with some Annie Sloan "Graphite" Chalk Paint.
I then sealed it all with two coats of Minwax Polycrylic to add that extra bit of durability.
Can you see it with an adorable baby or cute toddler posing on it?
I cannot wait to see what amazing portraits that she comes up with - I hope she loves it!
Have a great weekend!
