A while back I grabbed this little bench for free. We needed something for the mudroom ASAP, so I gave it a fast makeover.
It served its purpose well, but I’ve been craving a little bit different look.
While I didn’t mind the overall vibe of the bench, I was tired of the “permanently summer-ish” fabric.
Yes, I love me some Ashwood by Benjamin Moore. And I’m particularly enjoying it in a “flat” sheen. It’s pretty.
But before I decided to paint this little bench in Ashwood, I originally planned on using Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore. I spent Friday night painting it Navy, couldn’t make up my mind about the color, and decided to wait until Saturday to make the final decision.
After a whole lot of playing around and analyzing with the navy blue bench, Saturday afternoon I re-painted it in Ashwood.
I knew I was going to pair it with another favorite of mine- blue & white ticking stripe fabric.
Together they melt. my. heart.
I’m also completely digging how the ticking stripe looks with our rug…
It’s the exact vibe I was looking for and it’s already inspired a few more mudroom projects… which I’ll be showing you soon!
