Painted and Stenciled Piano Bench

2 Materials
I had an old piano bench that I was saving for a project. The bench was very old and scratched up! So I decided to chalk paint and stencil the bench to fit the "bright and happy" theme in my living room.
This is what the bench looked like before I started my project.
I started out by chalk painting the bench in a sunny yellow. Then I added a large stencil to the center of the bench. I also stenciled a cute little bird on either side of the main stencil.
This is what the bench looked like after I stenciled it.
Now, my bench sits to one side of my home's front door, just off our mini mud room area. It's a great spot to sit and take off our shoes before entering our home! I dressed up the bench with a few pillows that I've made. For more photos and details on how I painted my bench, you can check out my tutorial on my blog, Mom Home Guide. Thanks for the read!

    I really like that yellow color, creamy and pleasant. The stenciling is simple and lovely. It looks great in your mudroom (in photos from over at your blog)!
