Hi my sweet reinventor friends!
Today is Themed Furniture Makeover Day for November. Still one of my favorite days of every month.
If you’d like to see previous themed furniture makeovers, go here.
This month’s theme is storage, and I’m excited to share a project I recently finished for a friend.
Yeah, the engineer wondered why I don’t work on storage in OUR house too. ;)
Here’s what I started with. My friend wanted to use this bench in her foyer, adding seating and a little stylish storage too. She wanted to update the color, so she purchased some Maison Blanche Vintage Furniture Paint in Hurricane and sweetly asked me to paint it for her.
I had never used Hurricane before, it’s kind of a putty gray color, and I loved it after one coat.
After two coats and a little drying time, I sanded it smooth, and wiped on a coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax. For a little color and extra protection, I added second coat of wax also, this time using Maison Blanche Dark Antiquing Wax.
Here’s the finished bench.
It’s kind of hard to see the antiquing wax in a photo, so I tried darkening it up a bit.
And her close up.
Thank you so much for visiting today for Themed Furniture Makeover Day!
If you love this project, put a pin in it!
Have fun checking out all of the other awesome furniture makeovers below, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow for a fun Christmas Ornament Blog Hop AND our Inspired By You Weekly Features! Two posts on a Friday, go me! ;)
