I am frantically working on a whole slew of last-minute projects for the Ruffles & Rust Vintage Market THIS WEEKEND! Set up starts tomorrow, and I still have sooooo much to do! I am also hoping for just a teeny tiny bit of sunshine so I can take pictures of all my finished projects….that never really happened before the last market, and I’m still kicking myself for all the un-photographed projects.
But here’s one that does have pictures!
When my parents were visiting a couple of weeks ago, I dragged my mother and sister to JUST ONE estate sale before we hit the mall (they don’t share my obsession). I found this little treasure, which I turned in to a “French Bench.”
I found it tucked away in an upstairs bedroom, filled with old sheet music, broken class, and spiderwebs!
I sanded down the old finish, which thankfully also removed the suspicious red stains. What was that, I wonder? Ink? Kool-Aid? Cherry soda??
I perused my Pinterest French Typography Board and pulled up a Graphics Fairy advertisement that was perfect for the top.
I painted it on using an overhead projector and plain old acrylic paint like I did with my French Chocolate Coffee Table.
I love the little bit of storage in this bench, and I love the funky iron base. Wouldn’t it make a fun entry piece to store mittens and scarves during the cold months?
