Is there anything white paint can't fix?

My favorite client brought me this bench. Very sturdy, cute shape, but the finish was ROUGH.

And here's a bench that's perfect for a porch or entry. It even has storage under the seat!

Awesome makeover Allison! I think this post should have been titled, "Is there anything Allison can't fix"? :)

The paint is great, but I have to say I really love what the pillows do. Nice meta!

I believe the answer you're looking for is "No." No, there is nothing that white paint can't fix! Your bench looks fabulous. I'd be thrilled if you dropped by to share your creativity at the Head to Head Showdown, going on right now at www.icantstopcrafting.blogspot.com ~Jen
