Distressed country lovely

I ran across this little bench.  It needed a little update to make it into a distressed country lovely.  Here is the bench before I got started.  Noticed the painted on houses.  I think it felt a little 80's.  What do you think?

I had a little bit of ASCP Pure White left.  I mixed in a little Aubusson Blue and got a lovely light blue.  I rather liked it but in my never ending quest to figure out the dark waxing process, I decided this small project was a good practice.  After a little elbow grease and some distressing, I now have a cute little country fresh bench.

Here look a little closer.  No more houses! 

Doesn't it look better?  What do you think?
