She needed something in her bedroom to sit on that would match the turquoise nightstands. And it needed to be small, as she only has a tiny spot for it.
Remember this bench? ( yep, it’s all about testing your memory today!) I had it in my entry hall, but honestly we rarely used it, unless you count piling newspapers, purses and packages on it. So being the giving person that I am, I volunteered to give this cute little bench a tiny makeover to match my sister’s bedroom.
I loved the gold, but there’s not any gold in my sister’s bedroom. So I gave it a couple of coats of the same turquoise paint that we used on her nightstands. Once it was dry, I gave it a little bit of sanding to distress it, followed by a black wash. I love how you get the gold and brown from the past colors the bench was painted showing through.
Then a couple of coats of poly for protection.
I covered the seat in white mongolian lambs wool that I had left over from a couple of other projects. I love that fur! Not only is it cute, it is super durable. I really love the way this bench turned out.
It’s the perfect size for her room… a little girlie…. a little glam…. Perfect for my sister!
Until next time….
