I have been so inspired by all the wonderful refurnishing blogs and all the wonderful things people do with old furniture that when I came across this bench for only $2.99 at the Goodwill Outlet I thought I'd give it a try for myself.
Now you may think I paid to much. But I sanded it down. And added a few coats of creamy white (a quart of mistint I found at Lowes) paint.
Now we have a place to sit as we put our shoes on.
