Old Wood Bench Redo

I love to find things that I can remake into treasures, so I thought I would do a weekly post on some projects I have completed. I seem to gravitate toward painting everything black these days, since a few years ago everything in my house was white and shabby chic/cottage, lol.
I found this bench at a tag sale and it needed some updating.
