Before and After: Retro Yellow Mums Makeup Bench

Hi friends! Another Monday eh? I had a nice weekend, working on some furniture. How about you? Here's a little makeup bench I picked up recently. It was desperately in need of some Lather Creations refreshing, don't you think?

I decided to recover the seat with some gorgeous organic cotton fabric from Swanky Swell in a warm yellow mum pattern. Using the soft buttercream in the fabric, I painted the wood base in a soft cream that I mixed.

I wish I had my own makeup area with a little bench and a mirror! Do you? If so I'm very jealous! I think this little bench has a ton of great applications, from a mudroom to a cottage to extra seating to a little girl's bedroom. It's such a cute fun piece! Here's some more pics...

If you live in the Winnipeg area and think the Retro Yellow Mums Makeup Bench would look lovely in your home, you can buy it here. Or if you have an old piece of furniture you'd like to refresh, email me at lhume1@mts.net and let's talk!

Hope your Monday is awesome friends!
