Project Number One:
When we bought our house back in Nov '09, the owner left a few things behind for us, a few hidden treasures and a few causing for a run to the dump. One of the treasures is this beat up, ugly sky blue bench. It's location in the breezeway, where there is a lot of light from the sliding glass doors and two small windows works perfectly as a nice seating area when its raining out and a mud room in the winter to throw off our boots and hang our winter attire to dry out.
To make the breezeway a little more inviting, we painted the dark wood paneling with a light gray paint and white trim, added a beautiful white rocking chair with a khaki seat cushion, a black shelf with hanging hooks...all a little too fancy for this bench. So I decided to give it a face lift.
