Here is what it looked like before - it had a really nasty cushion which I ripped off before I took the pic.
So, I have a garage full of furniture that will receive some special chalk paint treatment. I hope I will be able to part with them. The chair above is a keeper - my new desk chair.
I also used ASCP on some new boxes my husband put together. When we make these, they are new pine which we hand distress, and apply the finishes to make them look like they've been around for years. If you are handy, these make a great DIY centerpiece for your rustic-chic wedding or event. So pretty with mason jars, a bundle of dried flowers or you can place a plastic liner inside and arrange fresh flowers in them. They are so useful after the event. They are a really nice seasonal display for your table, or mantle - filled with moss, spring eggs, punpkins or winter sprigs, pine cones and berries. You can even use these in the bathroom to hold soaps or hand towels.

These cast iron handles are available in my shop. They add such a nice touch to the rustic box.
Simple burlap and ribbon wrapped mason jars with hydrangeas.
We also sell these boxes on our website and in our etsy shop. Any size/color/quantity can be done.
