Debbie's 5x5 #3

I bought this awesome bench a couple of weeks ago (when Keira was here).  Cost me $8.00 at DI.

I think we can all agree that it was a hideous color. Light Mauve (or Early Decomposition, as I like to call it).  The color had to go.

I ended up painting it "Coastal Beige" (Behr).  The dark gray stripes (Thank you Suzanne for the idea) came from some leftover paint that I already had ("Antique Tin" - again, Behr(from The Empire Strikes Bath)).

Let's pose it in front of some flowers. Oops - forgot about the tent in the background.


  1. Pin-stripes are the key! I love the update!!

  2. Much better color!!! And I love the stripes.

  3. Very you! Love the bench...ought to send the measurements to T & S!
