Hello all! I’m sorry it’s been so long since last posting. I’ve been hard at work getting my garage makeover wrapped up and I’m excited that I only have a few little things to do and then it’s done. Funny thing is that it felt like I wasn’t making any progress for weeks. Then suddenly last Wednesday, things got their last coat of paint and I could start putting things in place. I envisioned posting more updates throughout the duration of the project as things got finished, but they all managed to get done at the same time. What’s that saying about how God laughs when you make plans? 🙂
So now you’ll be flooded with garage themed posts!
One of the more fun and quick projects was this spiffy little bench we made for the drop zone area of my garage. It was so simple.
I bought an eight-foot 2″x12″ of Douglas Fir at the hardware store. The store associates were nice enough to cut it to 36″ for me.
I bought it home and gave it one good coat of stain and let it dry overnight.
I met the wonderful folks at Osborne Wood at Haven this summer, and they generously gave me these rad midcentury modern hairpin table legs for this product. I could spend a whole day looking at everything on their website. Endless DIY inspiration!
We screwed the legs onto the bottom of the board.
I looked a the bench for a few days until I decided to add some stripes. I took my roll of painters tape and just started putting tape down until I was happy with how they looked.
I used some leftover white wall paint (satin finish) and filled in the stripes.
After an hour, I slowly peeled off the tape.
And that’s it!
So there you have it! I hope you like my little bench. I’ll reveal more of my garage makeover this week. Have a great week and go DIY something 😉
