I wanted to donate a small piece of furniture to an auction for a community organization that I belong too. I didn't have a lot of time before I left for Idaho and Utah to visit my family. I had just picked up this cute little bench, dug through my stash of fabric, and finally met my goal of painting something yellow!
I love it!
The gray is a lovely decorator fabric that mimics the look of raw silk. It is a gorgeous charcoal color.
I had to shoot these photos in mid day light, so they are a bit harsh and the yellow doesn't come through as it truly is, it called Yarrow Yellow from Ace. It is a bit more on the brown side that it comes across here.
The under coat is also from Ace. It is called Chopped Scallions.
I distressed the underside of the bench more than the sides. I thought it made an otherwise square piece a little bit more interesting.
I am in Utah visiting my family. I plan on working on a few pieces while I'm here, but we'll see. Five kids under the age of five are a force to be reckon with. I'm loving it, though. I love being with my sister.
