We had this Heywood Wakefield bench in our barn for over 5 years. I loved the style, but the maple finish...not.so.much!
A wall in our great room was really needing a nice place to rest. A place to display our favorite antique quilt, a gift from our favorite Aunt Joane.
We decided to paint the bench, GASP! Yep we painted a Heywood Wakefield bench! We did not change anything structurally, just the finish. So, if down the line someone LOVES a maple finish, it can be restored.
In the meantime, we LOVE the black bench!
What's your opinion?
We'd really like for you to see our drop cloth dining room chair covers,
here, our other Heywood Wakefield make-over, here. or our very cool tripod lamp retro-fit, here.
We are participating in Creative Cats Friday, @ poppies at play
