I made a connection this week with a man who buys storage lockers at auction and then wants to get rid of furniture quickly and reasonably. When I went to his warehouse I found this great old bench that needed some TLC.
The bench is made of wood and the cravings for the details are beautiful. After buying organic hemp fabric ( to die for fabric) I headed home to paint the bench. I painted the frame in Garlic Glove by Benjamin Moore with home-made chalk paint and then distressed it. To accent the details and seal the bench I used dark wax/hemp oil. This combination also made the white change to a creamy linen color which is what I wanted.
The bench seat needed some batting added to make it fluffy and comfortable. I covered the cushion in gorgeous organic hemp fabric--LOVE the texture!
I am so loving the details, delicate and dainty frame and beautiful fabric on this bench!
