Pottery Barn Bench Makeover

I've had this bench for a few months now, so I decided it was time to give it a pretty new purpose! I'm sure it was loved when it was shiny and new, but it was definitely crying out for some TLC. When I picked it up, I was told it's past life was at the foot of a teenagers bed. Now, it's waiting for a home to settle into. 

Sorry for the odd photo, I couldn't find the others I have. You can see the entire thing, even though it is up on it's end. This baby is 4' 6" in length, and I was storing it on a third floor at the shore house, (poor hubster). Isn't she beautiful?

Bench Before

I thought the bench deserved a pretty and bright new beginning!

So I chose Louis Blue from my favorite chalk paint creator, Annie Sloan

With a little bit of distressing and a nice stencil, the bench has a pretty new purpose. 

That gave it just the right touch, but not too much. 

I love how this pretty new bench turned out.

It's at Stone House, waiting for a purpose in your home :)
