Bench remake...

Hi Everyone!  I've been busy getting ready for my Studio Open House next weekend.  One of the things I did was redo a bench I made and took to the Arbor Day Fair last month.  I made this headboard bench with storage and painted it in Dark Walnut...
 ...but when it didn't sell I decided to lighten it up with a little remake...
 ...I repainted it in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White....
 ...and then I distressed it...
...I liked it in the Dark Walnut, but I really like how the details stand out now.  I think it was definitely the right decision to repaint it.
I think it was definitely the right decision to repaint it.  What do you think?  It will be for sale at my Open House next weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I loved the bench both ways. I think white does make it look much brighter. If it doesn't sell at the open house will you paint it again :)...of course, I am joking...I know it will sell!

  2. I think they both look great, but lighter is so "in" right now! Hope it sells quickly for you.

  3. I agree... it was great before, but lighter is brighter.... I bet it flies out the door. :)

    good luck with all the last minute preparations!
