Another bench

I have been prepping for my daughter's 5th birthday.  We are going with a Tangled/princess theme.  Although, she has requested a spongebob cake.  She tends to be fickle.  What can I say?!  My week will be spent scouring the web to use other well organized mother's party ideas.  I try not to reinvent the wheel. 

In the mean time, I have another bench to share with you.  This one was found at the Goodwill outlet.

A tad dated but sturdy.  I wanted to do a quick redo with little work.  I used ASCP Aubusson blue.  Just between you and I, I don't really care for this color but for a quick redo using supplies on hand it worked just fine.  I found just enough natural canvas to recover it.  It seemed to be missing something.  Yes, a stencil would work great for the seat.  I used my cricut to make the butterfly dream stencil.  I decided to go with a punch of yellow to give a nice contrast to the blue. 

I think it would be great for a colorful teen's room.  What do you think?

Hope you are having a creative week!

  3. Great minds must think alike! I just covered a stool in drop cloth and added a stencil to it, too! Yours looks so fresh and updated now!


I would really enjoy knowing what you think. I love getting your comments!
