I had the old piano bench. My grandmother had it in the house when I was a kid. Strangely, we didn't have a piano so I don't know the back story as to how it came to our lives but it did. I used to use it as a teachers desk when I played school. Anyway....years ago my house was primitive country and I painted it green and drew a scene on it. I am not the skilled artist so I painted over it with a cream acrylic paint. I know ...cream.79cent paint from Michaels Craft... over green!! What was I thinking?? The bench has been used to pile stuff on and has been underloved for some time. I needed to make it functional. It has too much sentimental value to get rid of so I decided to paint it.
So I dragged the bench out to the garage and began the process.
You can see in the above picture a little bit of the scene I had previously painted. Very country but hey don't judge me on my previous bad taste.
The pillows are upcycled as well and will take pics soon and post about those. They are soooo super easy and NO SEW!! The books that are on the desks are actually antique school books that I used to play school with also. But I have to say Zinsser primer has absolutely opened up an whole new world for me. Nothing is safe from paint in my house now, except for maybe the dog.
