Today was cold but lovely and sunny. So I thought it would be a good opportunity to up cycle a work bench which I brought several months ago. It cost me £60 from a junk shop locally.
It was just a dirty pine colour with lots of paint and pen marks on it. I had to sand it down the best I could do. Then I painted the base a soft pink. (I have used this colour lots)....
The front has three drawers. I had to paint the inside of these because they were so marked.
Before and after.
Next I painted the top a pale blue
Sky from Home base. A really pretty blue.
I still need to do a little filling.
Nearly finished.. But maybe a few more coats, then a sand on corners to give it that Shabby Chic look.
I will show you the finished result in a later post.
Have you up cycled anything lately?
