After the addition of the new, bright media cabinet, James and I decided to breathe some more color into the living room. This little wooden bench sits under the window in our space.
It was perfectly cute in its natural wood state, but we decided to use it to experiment with this red furniture stain. We stained the seat first and then decided that the whole piece in that red might be too much. So we used the white chalk paint for the bottom of the bench and distressed it a bit. I like the contrasting colors, as well as the contrast between the sleek stain vs. the aged look in the paint.
