Little Gray Bench

Hi!!  How was your weekend?  It was a good one here.....I went to a flea market this weekend and found a few cool treasures!  I absolutely LOVE flea markets!  I think the best thing about them is that you never know what you are going to find.  I've been going to these flea markets for about eight years now and still get so excited to go.  My mom and sister found a few treasures as well.  It was a good time which always includes a lot of laughs....  I look forward to going to our next one!!   

I wanted to share with you a bench I recently painted.  Here it is before....nothing special.  Although, in the same regard, nothing wrong with it as well.  I guess it didn't quite fancy me.   

So, I gave it a cleaning and then a coat of primer.  I then painted two coats of gray latex paint.  Lastly, I distressed around the corners and where it "might" get knocked around. 

Thanks for reading!!!
