Last summer I was at a flea market and ran across this bench.
You may be surprised to know that it was not the stained, country rose upholstery that attracted me!
It was those legs, and the wide bench pleading for stripes!
So I started by painting the base in ASCP Old White.
I distressed and added a coat of clear wax and dark wax.
At the same flea market where I found the bench, I also found a stash of grain sacks. Yes, the heavens opened, light shown through the clouds, and the angels sang "Eureka!"
It only took a few inches more than half of a sack to cover this so I've still got a large piece that can be used on a smaller bench or chair seat.
Yep, it still takes my breath away!
