An Old Work Bench Turned Bar – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends,

This week John and I celebrate 13 years of marriage! Wowzer! I can’t even believe how old that makes me sound… er, I mean, how quickly time flew by! I’m so thankful for all we’ve been through together. John makes me laugh and cry and I wouldn’t have it any other way. He’s so hard working, such a great dad, and a loving husband. Never demanding anything, always helping, and most of all showing love and humility to me daily. God blessed me by giving me this man and I’m thankful to be his partner in life!

We took a little trip to the Country Living Craft Fair this weekend and had a wonderful time! A huge thanks to my family for watching the kiddos for us!
This week’s makeover was so much fun! Sometimes people don’t think about how an old piece can be transformed  into something else that is functional and beautiful! Well, our customer Laura did! She had this old work bench in her basement and wanted to find a “re”purpose for it. She reached out to me to see if we could turn it into a bar for her.

It’s painted with Valspar’s  Vintage Teal! After we painted it (with just one coat of paint), we heavily distressed it and glazed it using Valspar’s Antiquing Glaze. If you want to see how we paint furniture, check out our How to Paint Furniture post.
