Basil and Antique White Garden Bench

About This Post

This bench is a great transformation from the twin size headboard we started with! The bench turned out much differently than my original vision but I am so glad I chose to follow where it was leading me because I love the vintage feel to it! It was fun making the gussets and the arms to further enhance the feel of something your grandma might have had in her garden. I chose not to take the existing paint (very chippy!) off before beginning the work with General Finishes Basil Milk Paint. I also used Antique White to soften the Basil. The seat was stained in Java Gel Stain and of course the entire piece was finished off with a High Performance Satin Top Coat. - Gigi's Hope Chest​
