Hello Everyone! I finally finished up the guest bathroom “waiting” bench as my husband Charlie calls it.
I can’t even remember where I bought the bench or even how much I paid for it but here’s a picture of the before.
I used Annie Sloan chalk paint Versailles and Old Ochre. I first painted it with Versailles and then painted Old Ochre as the second coat of paint. I sanded the bench after I applied the dark wax. Lastly, I applied the clear wax after sanding. For me, this works the best. It’s not so messy.
I recovered the upholstery part with burlap and hot glued the trim around.
I like having a bench in my bathrooms and mine are not used for “waiting”. I use mine as a little table to house different things. On this one I’ve placed a wire basket on top with a few bath items for guests who would like to take a hot soaking bath like my daughter Lauren when she comes home to visit.
Have you ever tried the Epsom Salt Lavender Soaking Solution?
I LOVE it! I take a hot bath every night and I use this. Not only does it smell wonderful but it leaves your skin feeling so soft.
Hopefully, with the help of Charlie, this weekend my plans are to get up into the garage attic and bring down all my Christmas stuff so I can start my Christmas decorating….I can’t wait!
As always, thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments. They are always appreciated.
