We've had this bench for about 12 years and I painted it about 8 years ago. Just plain old white. It sits by the front door and has been very, I guess you can say, loved. Very loved. It's a place for the kids to sit and put on shoes, a place to toss school and winter gear, even a place for the fat dog to rest his big butt as he waits for the boys to get home from school.
It was time to give it a little tlc and a different look.
