Dexter’s Garden Bench

This beautiful small bench came from a garage sale in our village. It sure was very shabby chic already and I thought I would not have to do anything with it, but after closer inspection it was obvious that the paint was falling off of it a little too much. Every time Dexter sat on it his clothes were covered in paint flakes so it was the high time to renovate but keep it look shabby chic.

I needed to sand the whole bench down removing all the old flaky paint but discovering the beautiful natural wood. I managed to preserve some of the colourful paint on the carved details and a little bit of white here and there. As per instruction on the tin, it has three coats of outdoor clear varnish.

I absolutely love this little bench!
