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!

Flea Market Finds (Before & After) | Record Cabinet Redo

Lets start with the ugly old before pic of the record cabinet:
and heres another of the before:

And here's the more primitive after picture where it sits now, in my Peddlers Mall booth:


I re-done this old record cabinet that I purchased from a local auction. I hated it, but it was solid wood, with "good bones" as they say. And I loved the bead board style on the front of the doors. I painted it, sanded it, and replaced the brass knobs with more prim, wood knobs. And now I just love it.


Here's a few more finished pics:

Price: $39.99 = Sold after only 2 days. That makes me extra happy!
