I don’t do a lot of really distressed/chippy/weathered makeovers, but this bench spoke to me and told me that’s what it needed. Yes it did. 😉 I didn’t see it just as a country-style bench, but aged and weathered from sitting on a grand wraparound porch somewhere in a distant time.
The look was fairly easy to achieve. I casually painted the bench in Old Ochre Chalk Paint®, not really caring if I covered everything. In fact, I tried not to cover every inch. Then when the paint wore off my brush I kept going – dry brushing and adding some softness.
After the paint dried I sanded it and finally applied a light coat of clear wax for protection.
I love the weathered look on this bench makeover and I really think it accentuates the beautiful details in the legs and spindles.
Are you a fan of the weathered chippy look?
