wake up that bench!

Remember my green bench that my husband found in the basement of the old VFW hall? 
This is the BEFORE photo:
 
 
It's rather boring just sitting there all by itself - so I added a colorful quilt & some flowers...but, it's still boring.
It needed to wake up!
 
 
This is the AFTER photo: 
(I took my friend's advice - Hi Barb - and painted it red)
I like it much better.
 
 
 

 
The little pillows add a nice little touch.

 
I'm much happier with the new look.

    1. Thank you, Evelyn. I don't usually do "matchy, matchy" but these just happen to be my favorite colors...in the moment!

    1. Thanks, Heather. It's a soft red - not screaming red! I do love my green quilt.

  4. I just painted an old bench and put it on my front porch too. Mine is red as well and looks awesome. I get more compliments than I did when it was brown!
    Next spring I'm painting the front door red to match!

    1. I'm painting my front door to match, too!!! I have gallons of the paint because we were going to paint all the trim. We - you & me - are awesome!
