Well, I have been staring at this bench for sometime now. Do I like it? Yes and no. I keep thinking that it’s missing something. I’ve moved it from the dining room to the entry hall then to my bedroom (you know, so I may ponder over it in bed at night while I’m watching TV).Is it the color…I only painted it five times. One milk paint, three different Annie Sloan paint colors and then a homemade chalk paint because I couldn’t bear the drive back to the store to get the white color. Is it the fabric…bad photo it is tan and cream ticking. Is it the pillows that I had to make to go with the bench before I could take a picture of it? It could be the areas were I distressed it (note the arrows) should I paint over those areas? Do they look dirty? Do I feel like making more chalk paint to paint over those areas? The answer to that one is no. I have been walking by it for weeks…taking pillows off, putting pillows on. I made a bolster pillow for the back. My oldest daughter took a nap on it so it’s comfortable. What do you think? I would love to know anyone’s thoughts.
