Bench Makeover

Susan blogs at Homeroad.  She’s lucky enough to have a neighbor that throws out great stuff.  When it came to this bench tossed by the neighbor, “I have red chairs from Crate and Barrel in my kitchen and I thought it would be great to try and match the color of the bench with the chairs,” Susan says.

She decided to try out a sample pot of chalk paint on this bench–making it a completely free makeover.  (Love that!)  She tried out CeCe Caldwell’s Traverse City Cherry.  With a couple coats of dark wax, this bench ended up being almost an exact match to Susan’s chairs.  Isn’t it lovely?
