I purchased this bench from a seller on Craigslist a few months ago. It's a good size and I thought it would look nice on my porch. Although the color wasn't bad as is, I decided to paint over it using leftover paint I had on hand.
After giving the bench a fresh coat of paint, I felt like it looked a little plain. I added a stencil pattern to the top of bench using template from Emily at Jones Design Company.
My pattern didn't turn out as well as I hoped
blamed in part to my crappy paint brush and unsteady hand s...
but, overall I am pleased with the new look!
Thank-you so much Emily for sharing your template!
