My 1st project reveal! {Lovely Wooden Bench}

Last night it began snowing again in Birmingham. 

As you can see it's a bit of a dusting (rustled up by the pups) and you northern peeps probably think we are silly for calling this snow...buuuuuut it is. So I spent naptime of this lovely snow day finishing a project! If you knew me, you'd know how proud I am......but before you give me a virtual pat on the back it is not really finished as I need to make a seat cushion and pillow(s) to complete the look.....none-the-less, TADA!

The before, yellow can be lovely, but not for this lady that I picked up at auction.
(it was a bit brighter than the photo shows)

And here she is now!
A little white, a little gray, a little glaze and a whole lotta loving this!
This is my front room. In it's hayday (1930s) it was more of the greeting room and serves a bunch of random purposes for our little fam.  As you see in this image, a bit of eclectic wonder still resides. I do love that giant dough bowl, I haven't found the perfect home for it yet.
BACK on are two photos I've found some inspiration for the finishing touches on this beaut!

Enjoy your day!
xx Sarah
