You know when you finish a project and your just not “feeling it?” Or maybe a giant wind comes up and knocks something over and breaks it, so it’s back to the drawing board? This project was born of just such circumstances. And do you know what? Cara and I both agree it may just be one of our favorites so far.
We had a pair el-cheapo side tables with really nice legs but ugly laminate tops. Cara did a great job fixin’ them up as best she could, but like I said before, we just weren’t feelin’ them.
Then there was the beautiful headboard that Cara painted. We were definitely feeling that one, but in an unfortunate accident, it was injured and couldn’t be used as a headboard any longer.
So in our second take, we put the headboard, it’s matching footboard, and the two side tables together to make a garden bench. We spray-painted it (yes that gorgeous color is SPRAY PAINT) using Krylon's Satin Jade. With a hand-painted bough of cherry blossom, and some brown glazing, we’re very proud of the final product (and fighting over who gets to keep it for their front porch!) :)
This project is competing in the Spray Paint Challenge at The CSI Project!
