Little Piano bench gets a Coastal makeover!




Hello!


Sharing my little bench seat makeover.... 


I bought this little piano stool a few weeks ago.  I found him sitting sad and abandoned in an op shop, but after popping on my 'potential glasses' (I carry them everywhere ;)  I could see that this little fella would look fab with a little TLC.
  







Before...  

Orange lacquer just had to go and stat!


Sanding, priming and some stripey details were on my to do list for this little project;


























and here he is after some Coastal lovin....






So that's it... my little coastal bench make over and no more orange lacquer in sight!

Not much else happening around here at the moment... we're caught up in Olympic fever!!  Have you been watching? 

Hugs...
