Today I'm posting about two projects that I just finished. They are both vanity benches and both started out as wood benches. Well, one of them started out that way. The first one you see here I think was actually one of those little French side tables that had the round glass in it. There was no glass, no seat, just the wood frame. To me it screamed vanity seat. It got painted and chipped up, had a wood seat made and then I covered it with a scrap of drop cloth that I stenciled my French poem on. Now it's a shabby little accent piece.
This next piece started out as a bench with a dark wood frame and some dated rose fabric. I love rose fabric but just not that fabric. I used the same drop cloth scrap and stenciled the script in white to match the painted frame. I like them much better with their new update.
It's super easy to stencil on fabric with this French poem stencil from Royal Design Studio. Just make sure you have a large enough flat surface to support the stencil as it is large.
Both these cute little benches are off to the Little French Flea Market this weekend in Tarzana, California so if you're in the area and you want to come out and sizzle with me, I would love to see you. It should be a very warm triple digit weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.
