I got quite caught up in my 3-in-1 posts last week, and since then have been so busy that I didn't get my final "finished" piece of furniture, The Bench, written up and posted for you to see. I am seriously in love with how it turned out!
See our crazy TALL entry wall...oh, it's soooo bare, I know.
Slowly, but surely - it will come to life!
The bench fits perfectly!
This is actually where I stage most of my pieces of furniture,
but if I didn't, I would probably build benches
with locker style pieces along the back. :-)
This is basically 3 benches in 1 modified
from Ana White's Spa Bench plan found here.
Now I'm just on the lookout to fill the shelves with wicker
or seagrass baskets for shoes. The whole "get your shoes
on in the garage" thing is definitely not working out.
As for some finishing info.-
I used wood conditioner,
1 base coat of Minwax Dark Walnut,
1 top coat of Minwax Jacobean,
2 coats of wipe on semi-gloss poly on the base, and
4 coats of the same on the top board.
Let me know if you have any other
questions about the piece!
In the meantime, I'm working on
Any questions or interest, please contact me.
Have a great day!
