before ~ dingy & dirty...
after ~ fresh & clean
light distressing on edges
lots of storage space for mittens, magazines, books, etc.
This storage bench was so cute to begin with but needed a little TLC! The hardest part about re-doing this was getting the hinge off the back.... oh my.... whoever painted it before, did not take off the hinge (or the 30, yes, 30 screws which attached it) & instead, painted over the entire hinge & 30 screws. It took me over an hour to get the hinge off!!
This bench was already snatched up by my husband's Aunt & she came up with the great color scheme! She asked for ASCP Old White on the legs & ASCP's Barcelona Orange (muted a little with Old White) on the base. The legs were coated in a white wax & the base in an antique dark wax. It is ready for her entry way & is sure to get compliments!!
