It's done, and I am doing a little happy dance since I am so happy how it came out!
As you might remember this was an old yellow bench that had been living out her years on my back porch getting little use unless you count the cat yacking up on it - my life is SO GLAM! She was dirty but she still had a lot of life to give so I washed her up and slapped on a coat of Louis Blue Chalk Paint and got it sanded back when life dealt us a bit of an uproar...but things have settled down and I got back to the bench..
So here she is.....what do you think? She came out JUST like I wanted so that is beyond exciting. After painting I had sanded her back a bit to expose some of the old yellow finish and then I added a nice coat of just plain wax. The wax added a lot of depth to the blue color before I even touched the colored wax.
Rub rub rub, buff buff buff, here is the back finished in contrast to the seat, I am totally grooving on the way it looks! Honestly this is what gives me the energy to go on since it's real work doing this bench! But oh so worth it!
What project have you done lately that came off just like you envisioned??
