Michelle, that is an amazing transformation, I never would have realized it was the same bench if you hadn't said so! Looks like a million bucks, fabulous job! Off to go buy some black paint :O) Deb

Amazing what a little black paint can do! :-)

Michelle said...

Looks great. I was looking for a small table that my husband could make me as a coffee table for our 5th wheel. I think I found it. Your table is so cute.

I love that, I have a table similar I am going to have to show hubby this and see if he could trim the legs a bit and use it as a coffee table.

It always amazes me what a bit of paint can do to transform a piece. I love this.

Oh what a beautiful little bench-it's hard to tell they are the same bench. Looks just wonderful.

Forgot to say I love your header-so springy and pretty.

Oh, WOW! What a transformation. I just love black - black clothes, black furniture, doesn't matter. ~Ann

I love it! I looks like a totally different bench. In the class I teach, I always tell my students that when they are looking for trash to treasure objects, to look at them for what they can be, not for what they are.
Great job!

Another pretty one:) You always find the best stuff to redo. Someday the trash gods will smile on me too and I will find something to paint a pretty black. -Steph-

WOW, love it!! I have a similar bench that was left in this house when we bought it, only the bench has a back. I was thinking last year about painting it black but didn't know for sure so I didn't do anything at all. Now I see that I need to get my rear in gear... this is AWESOME Michelle! It looks like a totally different piece too. Great job!
