Retro Chic Gossip Bench

By TammySue McKenna, Owner/Artist at My Retro Chic Boutique in MUSKEGON, MI.

This beautiful gossip bench went from drab to fab with a whole makeover. She is a wonderful "conversation" piece, pun intended. She was well-loved with worn material on the seat and wearing on the tabletop.  She had a broken piece of wood that was part of her stability. After replacing the broken piece with a new piece of wood, she underwent a mixed blue chalk paint job, distressed and waxed. Then she received new material over her cushioned seat. She would look fabulous on a covered porch or an entryway to greet and meet your loved ones.
