Funky Hand Painted Bench

by Kendall K.
Someone was going to throw out this bench just because the top was broken! Hubby fixed it with some wood glue and u can't even tell! Now to funkerize it!
I started off by priming the entire bench, then painted each section a different colour.
I printed off some patterns I liked and traced them on with either black or white carbon paper.
For super detailed patterns like on the table top, I used paint pens.
For other patterns I used a fine tip bottle and/ or a brush. I got to be really creative with these techniques!
After I was done, I sealed it with several light coats of exterior varnish because I knew it was going to be on the porch.
I blinged it up with some added embellishments. It's quite the conversation piece!
Here it is in its home!

    THIS is how everyone who funks out a piece of furniture hopes theirs will turn out! You took your time and really embellished every surface, it wasn't a rush job, so it all works together. I hope you enjoy it for years to come!
