Boho Bench

By Cindy Collins, Owner, Designer at Romancing the Home at Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors in Buford, GA.

The natural pine finish of this bench had become dated and boring.  To spice things up, a color wash in hues of blue were layered and applied in all the right places.  To frame out the new color, the original pine finish was darkened with water based wood stain in walnut.  The entire piece was then top coated to protect the finish.
