Before & After: A Wooden Bench Goes Bright

Over the weekend I visited a vintage furniture warehouse in Bel Air, Maryland called Ryan's Relics (thanks to a recommendation from a good friend and her husband), where I picked up this beautiful wooden bench. I love finding these around town because they make such great accents to the foot of the bed or near the front door.

I've always loved the combination of marigold with navy blue. Plus, any type of geometric prints makes me happy. So I reupholstered the seat in a navy and white geometric fabric and painted the bench in Marigold by Rustoleum. I love how the bench transformed from being a bit demure to having a wow factor.
