I am going to antique a new bench model, that I have just finished. I am painting on new wood, but this type of finish is great on old painted furniture. I am going to antique a Swans and roses bench that will be available on Sawtooth Ideas soon, as a woodworking plan, so you could do the same project if you want to. This bench is also available on Etsy finished or non finished.
|Paint your bench as desired. I chose a light blue paint for the bench, two shades of green for the leaves and two shades of pink for the roses. I painted the swans white with yellow beaks.|
|You don't have to paint in the grooves, just the basic shape. When you have painted the whole bench, let it dry thoroughly.|
|Don't forget to paint the sides.|
