When I bought the old worn chippy chair that I placed in the farmhouse style guest room I also visited another shop across the street that sells antiques and is a consignment shop, too. I just love finding new shops.
Not long after I walked in I spied this caned bench. I just love caning and the price was good. But wait, it didn't look like this when I bought it.
This is what it looked like and it was okay and I was going to use it this way, but I knew I could hopefully make it look even better and older looking with a coat of paint and waxes.
I layered two colors on the bench. First coat was Berge followed by Layla's Mint. Both are Miss Mustard Seed milk paints I had on hand.
guest room in place of the basket.
Do you like caning like I do?
I painted the bench a few weeks ago and this past weekend something else in here got painted.
I will share that soon.
