Primitive Bench

Here's the latest addition to my items for sale in my Booth #555 at the Peddlers Mall. It's a piano bench that I redid into the primitive theme.

And here it was before the makeover:



I first I tried to leave it in the off whiteish/light brown base with sage stars and red writing, and then I hated it!


Next, I painted it all over again in the black and loved it. Especially after I took sand paper and scruffed up all the edges to make it a little worn looking.

And here it is again, the second time I tried, lol. And definitely the best of the two.


Don't forget to like my Booth #555 on Facebook for the latest items!

 
 
And here's a few other things that I'm working on and will be putting in my booth this week, if' you'd like to take a look:

Old PIANO BENCH Repurposed


This is a photo of my finished piano bench. 

I'm still searching my camera for the before, which I do have somewhere in the 10 million photos.lol.

I basically took the old, dry looking, plain wood piano bench and started off with a good thick coat of black, outdoor paint. Brush on type, not spray paint.I wanted to give it a coating that will stand for some time. Even though it's an indoor item, I do that very often.

Then I waited an entire day for it to dry outside.

 Then I hunted through my stencil drawer to see what would look cute. 

I went with the theme of, "Old Crow Game Board Co." And threw in the miniature checkerboard.



Then I ruffed up the edges with sand paper on almost every edge. Then lastly, after all was dusted with a dry rag, to remove the sanding dust. I coated the entire top with a matte sealer.

I was happy to see this item fly from my Booth #555 within just a few days. 
Price was $24.99
Sold
THANK YOU!

It makes me super happy when someone buys my hand painted items that quick. Keeps me in the mood for painting more.

~Happy Crafting!

PRIMITIVE DOLL BENCH


Here's a cute little doll bench I finished in the Primitive theme.

This is the after photo.  Sadly, again, I forgot to snap an easy before pic! UGH!

But when I got it, it was an ugly, muddy blue color. Try to think of those blues that were around a lot when ducks were the fashion for kitchens. Yea, well, uglier than that. It was a deeper, darker blue.


First thing I did was put on a coat of flat black.
Then I roughed up the edges with stencil paint to give it a more worn look to where kids may have touched it the most.

And to finish it up, I stenciled on a cute saying that says, "Primitives, Blessings from our Past.


Price: $14.99 SOLD in my Booth#555.
Thank You!

PRIMITIVE Snowman Bench



Here's a cute, wintery, snowman craft idea to spruce up an old bench you may have.
I bought the plain old blue bench at a flea market for $2.00
(BELOW.)
  

First, I painted it with a flat black paint with a paintbrush, not spray paint.
You want it to last and hold up to wear and tear marks.
I redone in the "Faith-Family-Friends" theme. 
Since it's winter, I even added a little prim snowman to the front.

I painted it black and added some stenciled wording using Delta stencil paint.
The Delta stencil paint and primitive stencils can be found on eBay.


Then free handed a primitive looking snowman on the front.




I think it makes it look so much better. 
And will look great sitting in someones "Prim" style home.
I just love it.

Here's some more photos of it finished:
