I have a new King size bed in my bedroom and I needed something at the end of it to collect thinks. I found this grungy old bench at the Flea Market and it seemed to fit the bill so it came home with me.
The bench paint was peeling and flaking so I got out my hand sander and spent some time on the grungy bench making it smooth and ready for paint. I first painted it in Barn Red by The Urban Rooster.
Before I painted the white on the bench I rubbed an old candle on the edges and other places that I wanted the red to show through. The next 2 coats were painted in Marshmallow Cream by The Urban Rooster . To get the red to show up I lightly sanded the edges and then I sealed the entire bench with AS clear wax.
|I couldn't get a picture of the bench at the end of the best so I moved it to the wall for pictures!|
|Red and white|
|No more flaking paint!|

|I love the red peeping through!|
