Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
The person owning the bench told me "no rush" You know that's a very dangerous thing to say to me because I will take you literally! I tend to push those projects to the back and then rush to get them done.
I need to learn to just get them done and then wait for the owner to pick them up when they need them.
This was the case with the bench.
Great bones don't you think?
What a pain though. Thousands of staples and nails and parts of nails and holes to pull and fix.
I love these old pieces...I don't love the work involved.
But it's worth it in the end.
My client wanted this to sit by her pool and she wanted it black with a splash of light.
So this is what I came up with.
I love the combination of wood and paint and it just turned out so well on this project.
Now each detail pops...I mean really pops!
I really love both looks..but I'm leaning more towards the flowers, which is so NOT me.
What do you think? Stripes or flowers?
My client was super happy with the results and can't wait to get it into her gazebo :)
