Bench Craft

Hey guys, my 1st craft post is up. I’m no expert by no means but I love doing different crafts & I’m definitely not perfect at it. Lol. I just see things that I like to try and go for it, especially if I already have the supplies.

This piece is very special to me. My husband made it as a surprise for me for Mother’s Day many years ago. I especially love the little heart. It’s a little bench with a bookshelf underneath. This is what it looked like before I started. ❤️First I stained it with rustoleum ebony wood stain. I wanted to get a sort of distressed look when I sanded after painting.

    Next I spray painted it with krylon paint & primer satin Pistachio paint. I love the color. ❤️Then I sanded it to my liking and sprayed it with minwax water based polychrylic protective spray. The finished project! I love how it turned out. I decorated with just a few things I had around the house but plan to add to & change some things eventually.

I appreciate any and all tips or suggestions as to how to make my blog better.

Thank you, ❤️ Sherrie 😍

A little about me…

Hello, I’m Sherrie. I live in the beautiful city of Hot Springs, Arkansas. I am a Mom & a Nana, but mostly a Nana. I have 6 beautiful granddaughters aging from 2-27 and 1 grandson-in-law, so I have a variety of interest with them varying on their age. I have always catered to them, they are my life & keep me young at heart. ❤️

I am also a full-time radiologic technologist at a nearby hospital. I have been there going on 22 years. I love my job & the people I work with are my 2nd family.

I love spending time with my family, beach vacations or any vacation for that matter, crafting, fashion, shopping, scrapbooking, and anything else that might spark my interest.

I recently lost my husband of almost 31 years so I’m trying to adapt to the single life. Im not telling you this to feel sorry. We had a beautiful, fulfilling life together & I miss him terribly. ❤️ I wanted to start blogging because I thought it might be a fun little hobby, among all the others I have. One of my granddaughters started blogging a couple of years ago & I started reading her blogs & other people’s, so I thought, WHY NOT!!!

Anyway, I am interested in sharing my family life, crafts, & any other fun things I like. I’m kinda nervous about doing this & still figuring out how it works so be patient with me.
