Along weekend ahead and a bench re-do!

Before



  



After












Hello peeps...Awh, how nice to have a much needed 3 day weekend! Just in time to do some projects too...speaking of projects, I finished this one up today! I really liked this little bench to begin with (I love Noah's ark theme!) but, it just didn't match my prim decor...plus it was looking a little worn out. I'm not complaining...it took some time to distress "THE NEW LOOK", lol! I also only own one stencil...it has fruit and this little number on it. So I tried my hand at it. (I think I like stenciling) and with that said I want to give a very big thank you to Michelle and Lorna for suggesting the Folk Art From The Harbor . (They really do have some nice stencils and are priced just right...yes! A win, win!)  http://www.folkartfromtheharbor.com/catalog.php?page=4&category=69. I can't wait to get my new stencils!!   I wish you could really see this re-do piece. The camera/lighting, really doesn't do it justice..boo! I have done a few re-dos in my day...but I have to say so far this has been one of my favorite "before and afters" Oh well maybe if you click on the picture to make it bigger you will be able to see better. I think it turned out very prim! I hope you like it....
