Ginger Snap Crafts: Bench Makeover with DecoArt

Bench Makeover with DecoArt

This post is brought to you by DecoArt.

Good morning! When I was a little girl my grandfather had a bench at his house. I loved to climb on it, sit on it each time we visited & open & close the lid (again and again!). ha! It’s one of those things that brings back memories of my grandfather’s house. When he passed away a few years ago, I got to take the bench home with me. He used it as a firewood box, so it was in need of some TLC. When I first got it home, I gave it a couple of coats of chalky finish paint in a cream color, but I wanted to go a little bit more bold. So let me show you how easy this Bench Makeover with DecoArt was. Let’s get started! :)

I’ve been wanting to add more color to our home, and blue has been the color of choice lately! ha! What color are you crushing on? I also wanted to try out the Americana Decor Satin Enamels line from DecoArt. Just check out all of these pretty colors! Annnnnnnnd no sanding or priming are needed! Wahoo! :) I picked the Dark Denim. Which color do you like?

From DecoArt:

Satin enamel-like paint formulated to adhere to even the slickest of surfaces without a lot of priming and prepping. Satin is classically popular as a finish for walls, cabinets, furniture, and more. This formula was specially designed for revitalizing old cabinets. It gives them a durable finish making it ideal for high-use kitchen areas. No need to prime or sand before using.

Satin Enamels comes in 21 intermixable colors in an easy-to-use 8 oz, wide-mouth jar. One jar provides two-coat coverage on approximately 20 square feet.

  • Smooth brushability
  • Minimizes grain raising on wood
  • Non-toxic
  • Soap and water clean-up
  • Made in the USA

Painting with this paint was so, so simple! I just cleaned my bench off with a damp cloth. We use it as a shoe bench, so it was a little bit dirty. ;)

Then I used a foam roller brush to paint my bench. Two coats were plenty. I did a third just because! haha!

I really love how it turned out! It’s so nice & BLUE! :)
