Hello peeps! I have finally decided to start up our little blog again. I’ve been doing so many fun things here on the farm and decorating our pretty farmhouse! My friends and fam keep encouraging me to share with y’all, so here we go! My latest project that I’ve worked on turned out so much better than I could have hoped for! We have this beautiful big front porch and I desperately wanted one of those long antique pews that I’ve seen on other farmhouse blogs and Pinterest! (Love Pinterest!) But have you seen how much people want to charge for a dusty old pew? No thank you! So, I was browsing through the Facebook Marketplace and of course FREE caught my eye! There was a lady getting rid of an old headboard and a kid’s armoire. Surprisingly, I was the first to respond! That never happens! It was just meant to be! So I went and picked them up along with a couple other things that were sitting around on her property (The redneck in me couldn’t say no!) and headed home. Well after lots of research on Pinterest I created this beautiful bench! I am in love!
I think our little barn kitties love it just as much as I do. I used Rustoleum Heirloom White and did a matte protective spray to finish it off after I distressed it. I think she’s a beauty! If y’all would like me to do a tutorial, let me know. It looks intimidating but it really wasn’t that hard. I’m excited to share my crazy projects and all the chaos that is our farm.
P.S. Here she is all dressed up for Halloween!
