Do It Yourself Day

It's DIY Day over at A Soft Place To Land.

I thought I would show you a bench I use as a coffee table in my living room. My dad and I built it (ok, mostly dad) and I painted and distressed it.
Here she is. Isn't she fetching.
I first painted it red then added a brown glaze to give it a weathered look. Here's a look at it in the room. She turned out great and I love the pop of red in the room.


  1. Very cute! We just made a bench, too. I love it! *Lightbulb* Maybe we should make one for the living room. =)

  2. I love the bench...and I also love the yellow in that room!
