Present from Sonya and progress on bench

When Sonya received the present of my give-away, she wrote that she would send me something in return. But I didn't expect this much!
How nice is that! Thank you so much, Sonya! I'm sure I'll find a place for everything!

I have been busy myself too this week. Here's some progress on the bench:

The turqoise will be covered by white, so the colour gets trough the white when sanded for the old look. More on that next time.

You're a lucky gal, great gifts to help make your house a home :)

That bench is wonderful, I don't know if I could bear to cover the turquoise with the white - it's so gorgeous! But I know the final effect will be fantastic...

The bench is looking fabulous!!! What type of wood have you used! You have done a wonderful job on it!!

Heather zei

Really impressed with the bench! Great job.

Thanks for your nice comments!
Patty, the wood I mainly used is 4 mm MDF. As it has no grain, it shapes nicely when sanding. Only the armrests are made of the kind of wooden sticks you get to stir your coffee.


Marit zei

Sorry, I mean 2 mm MDF.
