Toy Bench Makeover for Metamorphasis Monday




This is my first time participating in Metamorphasis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch!
This is a chest / bench that I bought for $5 last year at a yard sale. It' been sitting on my porch holding outside toys ever since. Since I am working (slowly) on renovating my porch, I thought I'd paint this to match. I added 4 lil' wooden accents before painting it.






Isn't she beautiful?

Hi! My mother had an almost identical bench, only hers had a wicker seat. She called it a "deacon's bench," and kept it in her bedroom for her sweaters.

Your makeover is darling!

Carmen-I have had a hard time following you - you have not been showing up on my blog list. Then I found your blog listed like this ~ and that is all- so just checking to see if you know that or not.
I told the horse lady you know her and she told her daughter. I talked to Joy and she remembers you.
And I just love your halloween decorations! Take care. NNG
