Farmhouse Bench Makeover

 When my friend, Debbie, & her husband purchased a farm, this bench was left behind...

Although neglected & abandoned, Debbie wanted to save it & incorporate it somewhere in the new house they were building.
So, I started sanding away at all the loose, chipping paint.
Once I finished sanding, I painted the bench with the color, Fluff, from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.
When the Fluff was dry, I used the Royal Damask stencil from Dixie Belle and randomly stenciled some areas of the bench. I used the color Hampton Olive from Dixie Belle's new paint line, Silk.

Once the paint was dry, I sanded over the bench to maintain the rustic look.

Debbie gave the bench a beautiful spot to hold some of her plants in a beautiful sunny room.

  1. The bench has such pretty French Country charm now with the faded stencil design. Beautiful save, Virginia, you friend must be thrilled!

  2. Wow, that is so pretty!! I love the femininity plus rustic together!


  3. I love how this turned out. I haven't tried the Dixie Belle yet- My favorite antique store just started carrying the whole line.

  4. I absolutely LOVE this bench! The stenciling really makes it special. You've got one lucky friend:) Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm. xo Kathleen
