Yum Hey What's for Dinner Mom?: DIY {thrifted} Bench Remake


DIY {thrifted} Bench Remake

Old bench, new look. I've had this old bench for 17 years! First it lived in our mudroom holding hats and gloves in the seat, it lived there for 10 years. When we remodeled it just didn't fit the room anymore, it wasn't too big simply the wrong style. We popped into the basement because you never know when you'll need a bench.

That's really the danger of basements isn't it? No one ever will ever see your mess, unless they do because you have bedrooms down there. Anyhoodle this bench hung out there and then on the back porch last summer and it spent the winter in the old greenhouse. I still didn't want to get rid of it, I just felt weirdly attached to it. So I hauled it out in the driveway and proceeded to prime it up. HA! then I put it away for about forever and a day. I finally decided what color to paint it, it came in a flash BRIGHT ORANGE just popped into my head.

So I did and it is and we love it.

Peace and Love--


  1. It's a pretty bench. I'd never have thrown it away, either. The wild color is great!
