This is the story behind today’s DIY  Project. For the last few months we’ve been working on a bunch of Home Improvement Projects. At the same time we have worked on my craft room, family room, bedroom, my little girl’s bedroom and my son’s room… I know, I think I am a little crazy! Today I want to share with you a quick project. Hopefully this bench makeover inspires you to look at your own furniture with new eyes, and before you go out looking for a new piece, you consider giving what you have a new look.

Here is my New Old Bench.

In the same way that accessories make an outfit, accent furniture pieces give a space a complete new fresh look.

You can see the transformation process and on the top left corner the picture of how the bench used to look

 This was a 30 minute and $10 DIY project. It would have taken me longer to drive down to the furniture store and a couple hundred dollars to purchase a new bench. Since I didn’t want to spend the time or the money, I gave this bench a makeover. It was as easy as taping and spray painting the legs and bringing the wicker alive with some stain. Here you can see it right in our family room.

 To bring the rest of the ocean tones from the room into the bench area I used a throw to add a pop of color.
