Bench redo and house numbered pumpkins

I'm at it again.....
it seems like every weekend lately ive been a craft junkie.  spray paint, sewing, project redos.  of course the BEST ones are the re-dos.  those are basically free! 

ive had this bench around for years.  my bro-inlaw is a fabulous carpenter and made me a set a few years back.  they have been moved all around the country and are still in fabulous shape.  i just dont have the "oak" thing going on anymore.  (this small one has a bigger sister....who is getting painted as we speak--wootwoot)


A-DORABLE!!!  i went to the craft store this weekend got some rubber/foam fake pumpkins.  all i did was print out numbers big enough, trace them using a ball point pen (because it indents in the rubber/foam) and then painted the numbers with crafters acrylic paints.  im going to spray them with a clear coat so the heat doesn't fade them.  (we are still around 100 degrees....im not a happy camper!!!)

here is my bench before.  i just sanded it a little bit with my handy dandy mouse sander.


sprayed it with primer.

spray painted it black.  a few coats to ensure it was covered.

isnt she cute black?  but shes lonely.....

she needed pumpkins!!!


happy fall!!!

Great fall project! I have a few old oak shelves that could use some paint. Thanks for showing us how you did yours.
