Pretty Green Storage Bench

My husband is at it again!  First he painted a chest and dresser and then he painted sports theme pieces.  This time he painted this Pier One storage bench.
It already had a distressed look, but then it had some damaged areas and needed to be tightened up.

He painted it with two coats of Behr Outback green mixed into homemade chalk paint, lightly distressed and waxed with Minwax Finishing Paste.
It is such a light and happy color green.  Didn't he do a great job?

  22. I can't say I have ever written a review for a storage place before, but hey there is a first time for everything and these people are really good! They are the only place I visited that took the time to show me my options and did not try and force me into a larger unit.
