I started with this, it had all the drawers, but I wasn't planning on using them. Those drawers became 2 more projects, one here.
And this is what I ended up with! An improvement for sure!!
This sits in my entry and I have a basket assigned to each kid where they can put their shoes. Their backpacks fit nicely behind the closed doors and my entry is far less cluttered than it was with a bench there!
I chose to finish it with a polycrylic type product, I will wish at some point that I had done more coats, but I was impatient. I wanted to try my hand at waxing for the finish but I could not find clear wax in my town and I didn't want to delay this project any longer. I did have bleed through in a small area or two, but since I was distressing it, I did not think it looked bad.
Thanks for stopping by! Any solution to the bleed through with white chalk paint?
