I took a few quick photos of this bench before taking it over to the booth. It is painted in Chateau Grey with hints of Scandinavian Pink peeking through. Many times I will paint furniture in more traditional colors to appeal to a wider audience, but sometimes I like to paint in fun colors. And this is certainly a fun color combination! I think it will look adorable in a sun room or on a patio surrounded by a rainbow of blooming flowers. Come on Springtime!

DuringPainting in between the slats was easier than I anticipated. I used a cheap brush so I wouldn't ruin the bristles on my good brush, and approached it from the underside.

AfterAfter the base coat dried I applied two coats of Chateau Grey. I "wet-sanded" the grey to reveal blushes of pink. The entire bench was then sanded to a smooth finish and a coat of soft wax was applied for durability.
