Benched

I should be benched--I forgot I never showed you what I did with my bench I made.  I loved lots of your ideas, but decided on dry brushing white on it. 

 A dark stain against this chocolate wall wouldn't be good.  I liked the idea to make a bench pillow or pad and might still do that, when I get to it ???  I decided the white was best with the white baseboard and did the drybrushing so the great wood texture would still show through.
