Wrapping Paper Bench


Hello Ava Blakers!
I've been benching a lot lately!! Get it....HAHAHA! Seriously I mean I've redone 4 benches recently! 
Here is one of them....I scooped this bench up off of kijiji! WHAT a score don't you think? I had already started the undercoat for distressing in this picture.




BLAMMO.....



I painted the bench van Gogh Fossil Paint Mascara Black in certain spots then covered the entire bench in Chalk White. I distressed it back to the black in some spots and right to the wood in others. To finish I used the French Caffeine Beeswax and sealed it all in!!

 I then Mod Podge glued this stunning wrapping paper....YES wrapping paper! I bought this one at Christmas time. It is Antique French Handwriting on worn brown paper.
I like how the Mod Podge makes it come a bit wrinkly....it only adds to the character of it all!
~SIGH in DELIGHT~





Here is the before & after picture....

 I REALLY love how this one turned out....and now it's in my entrance! 
What do you think?
I LOVE hearing your comments.


Much Love,
Jenny
