I covered the cushions on the bench inside our front door
but it wasn't enough of a perk.
I peeled off the old dark trim.
(I had to use the heat gun to soften the glue)
and sanded down the rest of the residue off.
Then I took the whole bench outside to paint it!
It took all three cans to cover the dark wood.
It was a beautifully warm day and the coats dried in no time.
I brought it in just as the sky darkened and the rain began!
Yes, this was the look I was going for!
The print on the upholstery is kitchen-y without being kitchy!
See, it looks light and airy and new.
I'm pleased with the days work!
(the orange cat scratch/toy really goes well with the bench, too!) lol
