Pumpkin Spice

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!!
Thanks, Shelby!!
