After finding this old cane bench I decided to do a French makeover on it and now I love it.
It’s been a whirlwind around here lately! I don’t know if I’ve ever been this exhausted before.
I’ve had some very unexpected yet exciting things happening in my life which I hope to share soon.
I was moving some things around the other day and got in the mood for another furniture makeover.
I’ve had this little cane bench for years but it was just hiding in my closet.
Time for a makeover!
Here is where the little cane bench sits in my walk-in-closet. You might recall it’s my Audrey Hepburn inspired walk-in-closet.
I used bed risers to paint it. When I saw them I didn’t think bed risers, I thought furniture painting supplies!
Because this piece was high gloss, I sanded it all over just to rough it up a bit which only took about 5 minutes.
I love cane painted white (so French!) so of course that’s what I did.
I used Casement from Fusion Mineral Paint.
I seriously wasn’t loving this piece anymore but now I do.
I’m not sure where I’m putting it just yet but it works as a cute side table.
I still need to add some beeswax polish to it but I love the finished look.
I was worried I’d have to get out a spray paint can to paint over the cane but it was really easy.
Now it looks beautifully French.
