Chippy Bench in Teal Zeal

I want thank all of you for your sweet comments about our new baby and our family photos. If you missed that post you can click here.
I forgot to mention that we are having another girl which is perfect because I kept everything that belonged to Elise.

Now on to the furniture!

My client wanted to makeover a bench for her little girl's room. 



I felt like my staging was lacking so I called in reinforcements!
She makes the bench look so tiny when she's jumping off. 

The paint is Teal Zeal by Behr and I used my orbital sander to distress. I went back with a light grit sanding block to smooth it out. It gave the bench a great chippy look! After I distressed I sealed with paste wax.
The pulls are from Hobby Lobby and the fabric in the drawer is from Joann's. 

My client used that fabric to make curtains so I added it to the drawer to hide ugly stains left over the years and to tie the bench into the room.
