Mr. Bench has been floating around in those dreams for a couple weeks now, so I decided to share him with you.You may remember this bench was originally in my kitchen with another table that I turned into my desk.Poor Mr. Bench was left out of the fun, and I put him in the hall for back packs and such. Then came the garage sale and I used him for my desk out on the driveway.Well, it’s finally time for him to shine!
I must admit I do like it.
I have seen it on pillows, lamp shades, and even plates.You know where I’m going with this don’t you?Thanks to my friend, Sherry, over at Pondered Primed Perfected, I found these paint pens at Joann Fabrics.I didn’t even know they existed until I saw Sherry’s post on transforming her table which can be found here.
on Mr. Bench.
(why am I calling my bench Mr. Bench-I have no idea!)Yes! You heard me…write!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 honey!”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…
I hope you enjoy the final pictures and
they find you feelinginspired.
