my first furniture project to commence!

so my new addiction is estate/yard saling, and last weekend i was on the hunt for a smallish piece of furniture that i could cut my furniture refinishing teeth on.  mission accomplished!  i found this adorable bench at an estate sale last friday.

nothing too fancy, but just enough real estate for me to get maximum experimentation out of it.  my plan is to strip the top and stain it dark.  i'll probably try out the dark walnut that miss mustard seed is quite fond of.  then for the legs, chalk paint in versailles and some distressing.  i'm super excited to try this out.


  1. Good luck with this project! Can't wait to see what you do with it!
