I’m excited to finally be revealing my DIY cerused bench. I’ve been working on writing up the detailed instructions so I could bring you the instructions and the after pictures at the same time but it’s taking me sooooo long to write them and I couldn’t wait any longer. So…today I’ll show you the after and then later this week I’ll bring you the instructions.
The day I finished the bench I’d set the whole day aside to do the final step. When I finished hours earlier than I expected, I ran out and bought all of the accessories you see here (except the dog, he’s been ours for years…Ha!). I’m still working on getting the right accessories for the bench and everything around it but I must say I’m in love with how the bench turned out.
To recap, this is was my inspiration.
And this is a close up of my bench.
Not bad, huh?! No one is more surprised than me. Trust me. Over the years, I’ve attempted many DIY projects and more often than not either, I wouldn’t finish them, or they didn’t turn out how I’d envisioned. So I’m pretty happy with the results here.
Before of bench…
I found these amazing little marble-effect pillows at Target for $5. I love them but I’m not sure they work. Too much or just right? What do you think?
