Settee Sitting Pretty

I convinced my DH to stop by a thrift store while we were in Nashville a week or so ago.  I found this little settee and knew it had to go home with us!  It needed a little updating and I thought the pack was a little plain but it had the making of a wonderful piece!

Less than 12 hours later.... 


Ready to go to Then & Again Home Marketplace to find a new home!
I added the medallion to the back to dress it up a bit, painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint's Duck Egg, distressed it and recovered the seat with some cute fabric.  

What a fun piece to work on!  Now on to the next one!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great little bench! And you did a great job transforming it into a beautiful piece!

I love your blog, glad I found you!
