DIY storage bench!

So I have been needing a little bench to put in my laundry room and entry way for a while now.  I have never been able to find the right size! then I saw this Kids bench, on Ana White's website!

I had to do it, and my hubby of course put his little twist onto too!

My talented husband made TWO in just a couple of hours!  Yeah!
I used spray paint to paint them, it is kind of neat because the wood grain still shows through.....

I am not finished yet.... still want to wash it with a dark brown to make it a little darker and then distress it a little!... So far so good!

Here is the finished look of both in their homes!

Old age does not come alone and my memory isn't what it used to be, not helped by having CFS. it would just be great if your posts just appeared in my e-mail inbox. Many thanks. Oh and if you do add it, could I ask you to let me know , so that I can pop on over to subscribe.TTFN.from Bonnie Sccotland. xx
