Updating a Country Bench

Most Roadkill Rescuers would agree, it’s hard to pass by anything made of solid wood.  So you’ll understand completely why Sara from Thrifty Treasures had to bring home this sad little bench she found.

Along with the paint splatters, it was probably the hearts on this bench that were causing it to show it’s age.  ”I decided I could cut the heart out and the bench would still be solid enough to remain a bench,” Sara says.  It worked!  After remodeling the legs, she painted it with Beach Glass by American Paint Co. paint and coated it with dark wax for some rustic appeal.  To further transform this bench, Sara upholstered the seat with some pretty striped fabric in coordinating colors.  It looks like a completely different bench!
