This summer we were so blessed to have my parents visit! It is always a treat to have them here and even more fun when we do a project!
My parents are teachers and my Mom was decorating her room with an Americana theme. She had the perfect spot for a small bench and I had just the bench for her! I was thinking of painting it, but she wanted it stained. So, as I went to bed that night....I couldn't sleep....until it hit me,
As you can see the above photo is not of a bench, it is actually the board I used to test my idea.
Let's see how we did it shall we?
Easiest DIY Bench Ever, and sanded them down.
Anyway....The above photo is showing you how I cut out a star slightly bigger than the size of my stained star, and put it on top, so we could do this...
Wondering about the test board? I gave it to my Dad for his classroom. I after I did the star, I was in a hurry and didn't press down to seal the bigger star and the tape as well as I should have and the stain bled a little. So make sure to press really well, and it should work perfect like the bench above!
I am so glad you stopped by! I hope you come again soon!
