Mudroom Bench Makeover- Take 2

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.

And since I’ve already painted two pieces of furniture (here and here) with my new favorite paint color, why not add one more to the list?

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!

Happy Monday!

  2. Love your stool. Nice job. Love your rug too, care to share where it came from. Been looking all over for a grey and white rug (reasonably priced)?

    • THANK YOU Kim! I am so glad you like it. The rug is from Target. I bought it a while back, but the last time I was there (which wasn’t too long ago) they had it on sale! It was reasonably priced… like $20 maybe?

      • They don’t have it up here in the Northeast, I’m always checking Target. I just found your blog last week, you were featured on another blog, and for the life of me I can’t remember. Look forward to your future posts and thanks for sharing. I will look for the rug online?
        Enjoy your stool!
        Thanks, again.

        • Bummer! Perhaps they will have it online… hopefully! I’m so happy you found me- and to have you as a new reader! :)
