SK's upholstered wrought iron bench and matching custom canvas paintings.

An old cracked wood and wrought iron bench was in need of a pretty face-lift. And me being, well Me. I had to make it way more difficult than it needed to be. But the experimentation was worth the effort.

I sanded and then painted the metal with a Rustoleom hammered black iron paint.

I pre-painted the background canvas for all three pieces. I used a damask curl stencil and The Graphics Fairy whom I love. When this light background was dry, I used a Clorox bleach pen and drew more curls knowing after washing these parts would looked bleached.

The custom sizes of the canvases dictated I build and stretch my own. I bought a cream canvas duck. Again with the washing and ironing duck...Getting to be a habit.

I use graphics from The Graphics Fairy often.

After adding foam and under-fabric, I upholstered the cracked old wood bench with the pre-painted canvas.
Then the real painting started...
