Children’s Park Bench

A few times a month, our favorite thrift shop will discount its furniture by 50%. It was on one of these special occasions that we came across this adorable children’s park bench. The size caught our attention and we fell in love with the animal detail on the back. The bench needed some repair- the wood was greying and begged for some luster.  We unscrewed each wooden plank and sanded, revealing the surprisingly great condition of each piece.  Using Rustoleum wood stain, we layered a new look onto each plank.  With the plastic animal backing now separate from the bench, we coated it with a yellow Valspar spray paint.

Now, if only we could get our hands on a bit of Alice’s shrinking potion……
