Found Bench

June 30, 2010

Jonathan and I found this bench on the side of the road and I just had to have it.  At first glance I thought it was in good shape but just needed paint and a new cushion.  Well, that was not the case!  It needed a lot of work but I finally finished it and I couldn't be happier!

Pretty dramatic difference huh?  I just love it!

Visiting from Shabby Chic Cottage, this is a great transformation! I love the color and the curves of the bench. I just bought a coffee table for a $1.00 that I am going to turn into a bench.

What a fun little bench. I would have stopped and picked it up too!

Sorry, I didn't mean to be anonymous. I guess I got a little excited about pushing the button. This is why I shouldn't comment on stuff before coffee in the morning!
