but I was a little nervous when I was trying to figure out how to write on Mr. Bench.
The first step was painting the bench with paint already has the primer in it.
I used Behr Ultra in Swiss Coffee (eggshell sheen).
My handwriting is “okay”, but by no means is it perfect.
Then I thought…so what.
It was that inner voice inside of me that says,
“Go for it Julie…it’s just paint.”
So, I “doodled” all over it and then made it look old and used.
I know it’s not perfectly handwritten,
but that’s what I like about it.
It’s real…not written from a machine. We eat and laugh around here a lot…
so I decided to keep the theme light,with a twist of love & memories based around food.
I have a feeling my family will get much joy from reading
these doodles through the years when we gather around the table for meals and special occasions…
When I “staged” the new bench with our table, I decided to get out some other decor.
I started feeling like it was Christmas in September …or even Valentine’s Day.
It’s not, but it sure looks pretty to me.
I hope you enjoy the final pictures and
they find you feeling
