Painted Bench

Found this bench at my favorite haunt....Habitat Restore.  It was kinda worn and had lost its luster.  I used Clark&Kensington paint (free quart from Ace Hardware promo).  The color is Madison Avenue.

It's now in my booth waiting for a new home.....

Since it's Spring......the little birdie image on a foot stool seemed just right....

The bird image is from Graphics Fairy


Okay, it's Monday.....you know what that means.
Get out there and create, make, paint, sew, write, photograph and find something wonderful and share it with the rest of us!

~~hugs~~
