I'm also slightly (ok, totally) obsessed with upcycling, and making over furniture. More so when the vision I have in my mind, works out well in real life, which as we all know, isn't always the case. So let me introduce to you my finished pew.
So ... what's a girl to do! Paint it of course. I didn't want it to be white, so off I went to Farrow and Ball to see what paint they had. I had a colour in mind, of Skimming Stone, but the wall that it sits against, was going to be painted in Skylight (same colour as the dresser), and after talking to the assistant, he showed me that it would end up looking quite lilac. So instead I went for Cornforth White. I'm so pleased I did.
Here's the process I used.
Of course ... first it was primed with Zinsser.
Next came 2 coats of the Farrow and Ball, Cornforth White.
Here's a better look at it, against the blue. I think it works, I hope you do too. All I now need to do is make a seat cushion for it, and of course, I'll show you when I'm done.
Happy Friday friends, I hope your weekend is a good one.
