I have had this bench for a few years and wanted to lighten it up with some paint and glaze.
This is the bench that was dark and it was okay but I was tired of it. It had so much detail that did not show.
Here is the after and I like it much better. We used paint and glaze we had leftover from other projects so there was no cost involved.
Closeup of the details on the arm of the bench ...
and on the front legs. This piece has so much detail that you just didn't notice until the glaze was applied. Love it now!
It will be in the same room as the cedar chest I painted here.
Here is the cedar chest from the previous post.
This room makeover is taking forever! I took a couple of chairs that were my mother's to the upholstery shop to have recovered. They will be a huge transformation too! I can't wait to see them with the new fabric.
I now have to decide on drapery fabric for the large window you can see in the pic at the top and another smaller window. Decisions ... decisions! Hopefully I will have this project done soon!
I am joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch - Met Monday and
Linda at Coastal Charm for their linky parties.
