I’ve had this little project completed for a while, but it wasn’t my favorite, so I haven’t gotten around to posting it.
It’s just a simple little pine bench that is made special by some decorative cut-outs. I hand-drew my curves out on a piece of paper, cut them out, and then traced them onto my wood. I cut out the shapes with a jigsaw.
Would you believe I still have the piece I cut out for the leg? It was just too cute to throw away!
I had in mind that I wanted this bench to be aqua, but on the day I needed to buy paint, the line was SO LONG at Lowe’s that I picked up one of their pre-made sample pots instead of the color I wanted. I got “pale aqua” instead of “aqua.”
And it’s an OK color…just not the one I wanted!!
I distressed and glazed it, but I still thought the color was a little anemic for me. I mean, if I want color, I want COLOR!
Yes, I know it’s just paint and I could re-paint it…but it’s hard to get up enough ambition to re-do a project you just did!
So you guessed it………… I sold it….
On to the next project!
