Wonderful Wood

Look what hubby brought home:
Oh, he knows the way to a girl's heart, at least this girl.  It is all different types of wood, some barn  wood, some other pieces.  A few square nails came out of some of the barn wood so it is old. My first project was a little, simple bench.
This is the most basic of construction and doesn't have a whole lot of stylish details, but a great shelf under the bench for shoes or storage baskets.
I painted over the barn red, yummy, delicious crackling paint--some bright green and turquoise.

Very little sanding and a little stain completed this simple bench.


  1. Very cute. I like the color alot. Oh, if my hubby would bring home a truckload of goodies like that, I would swoon :) happy creating

  2. Lucky girl to get a load of old wood pieces to use to your hearts content! Can't wait to see all your lovely creations , and the shelve is a perfect shabby find! xo's Pam

  3. that's a LOT of yummy wood! You got busy right away.
    Love the bench!
    hope you're having a great weekend Becky,

  4. Oh that was like a trip to the mall for some women...I prefer the wood! Love your first project with it.
