No. 72 Coral Bench
I just couldn't resist those great legs.
But, they look so much better now...
If this bench doesn't say spring, I don't know what will! This is the second color choice for my personal color challenge.
I went slightly pinker with my coral pick, it is 2 parts Japanese Kimono 1 part Guava Jam by Behr. I couldn't decide between the two colors so I mixed them together into homemade chalk paint. Perfect.
I recovered the top with outdoor fabric in a great bright ikat. Wouldn't this just be a perfect bench in the front hall to put on shoes. Or an ottoman in a room that needs a pop of color.
I sealed this little bench with Howard's Feed and Wax, I applied it liberally and let it sit overnight before wiping it with a rag. The chalk paint just soaked it up and it has a nice shine.
