For Valentine's day Mr C built me a bench I have been pining over (no pun intended cos it's made of pine)...well maybe intended...a little. I saw a bench on Ana White's blog that was a pretty little simple bench. Rustic if I finish it that way. You can see Ana's blog here and the instructions to boot! It was a sweet surprise when I came home from a long 12 hour shift at the hospital to a cutie-pie bench made with love :) hee hee!

I am trying to 'fumble' my way through distressing it...I have primed, painted it Martha Stewart Sea Glass, sanded it to distress it and just now, put a coat of white on top of that. I read in blog land how to glaze with craft paint so I am gonna try that next. Call it my trial and error paint project...
Any tips (and I mean any) would be graciously appreciated! Hope you are liking the slow and steady progress of the mudroom! It's really coming along :) The bench will be going in there :) We have painted the walls now and put in a new door bell. Just anxiously awaiting the arrival of out new screen door :) Mr. C is going to put up board and batten too...he loves the look and of course, so do I!!!
