Before & After: Pumping Up The Volume on a Bench

A few months ago, while searching for furniture to restore for an upcoming outdoor market, I came across this beautiful painted bench. She was so lovely to begin with that part of me debated whether I shouldn't keep her as is. But seeing how much potential there was in this piece, I decided to up the wow factor and add a little more personality. Check it out!

A new coat of paint and a contrasting print turned up the volume a bit, and after I posted this on my Instagram feed, a good girlfriend of mine (who, interestingly enough, has a dress in a similar pattern and colors) quickly scooped it up for her home!
