Met Monday.......I have been benched!

Time for Metamorphosis Monday, can't wait to see everyones before and afters!
Thank you to Susan at,http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ , for hosting us.
Be sure and check out her great blog and the links for all the other posters this week!
Well late today I had a chance to paint this bench I had been wanting to work on.
I found it last year at the thrift store for about $40 with the cushion.
Really not to bad the way it was but now I am wanting to use it in our Master bedroom, at the foot of the bed, when we redo it.

Before......

After..........


I painted it off white like our bedroom furniture.
Color is actually called Alamode.
And added the chocolate colored button tufted cushions I found
at ROSS. I am in love with this color of brown!
