While most of Blogland is knee deep into Christmas decorating, I have vowed to hold off at least another week. So, I will be offering up non-holiday posts like today’s entry about a bench I renewed.
I bought this little Queen Anne bench, sight unseen, from a local auction house a few weeks ago. I spotted it on their website and made a bid over the phone. Luckily, the next day I received a call telling me I had won it.
I followed the usual drill of disassembling it and ripping off a few layers of fabric.
Then I recovered the seat with this great blue linen upholstery fabric I found at a local fabric shop. The bench will go in our master bedroom, and the blue is the same color as the adjacent master bath.
I painted the bench with antique white chalk paint.
I then roughed it up with sand paper……….
and applied wax.
This is the final product. I think it is a pretty good before and after.
