Country bench

Good morning everyone

I picked this up some time ago - but with everything that's been going on in my world - reno's - disastrous discoveries etc - she just sat in the dining room patiently awaiting her makeover -
In order to escape a little of my reality I decided to get lost in a makeover - a quick one - but a makeover none the less

Seller's photo

and now

Painted Bench, shabby

I added a few " country " words - and that Hen towel?  Tina from What we Keep created and sent me
I can't use it - I simply can't - it's too pretty ( what IS wrong with me? )

stencilled country bench makeover

Hens and eggs - get it - got it ? Good !

I can't use these either - which Dani from Frugal ain't Cheap sent me -

I'm even too scared to leave them out on display in case John uses them LMHO -

And just as I was finishing up, look what arrived !!!!!!!!!!

and the new window is here too !!!

Oh my gosh - it's close now folks - it ohsoclose to being finished ( the kitchen that is - the rest of the place is still vomit inducing )

In the meantime my country bench is " fait accomplis "

And she's saying Merci ! ( she's a bilingual bench don't you know - she advertises in English but she speaks in French )

Ebony and Ivory

Live together in perfect harmony - on my coffee tables!
I think this is my favorite all time color combination - with everything actually - I love it in home decor -  shoes - clothing - linen -  I even love black and white photos!
So it was a no-brainer on what to do with these homely looking things



I used ASCP Graphite on the top - and old white on the bottom -
Stencil was done in old white - with a wash of Graphite over the surface - to give it a " smudged aged " look
That streaky look is intentional and looks quite lovely in person ( not so much in the photos I know ) but
it looks like it has depth because of it.  The glare of the photos makes it look too defined but it isn't at all!
And of course waxed

and ready to sell

Sometimes - just sometimes - it's ok to see things in Black and White!
Have a wonderful day!
