If you’ve been around a while, then you know I absolutely LOVE TO THRIFT. I haven’t been doing it as often as I used to, even pre COVID-19. Well, a couple of weeks ago, I ventured into a brand new thrift store in my neighborhood. This is a new store in my area, so I am not familiar with the name, but it was not a major store like Goodwill. I snagged this bench for $14.99 and a small footstool for $4.99. I knew it would be perfect to tackle as a DIY wooden bench makeover.
So, earlier this week, I tackled quick diy makeover on the bench and documented everything in my Instagram stories. If you aren’t following me over there, what are you waiting for?
To begin this makeover, I took my bench outside and gave it a quick sanding with my sanding block.
After giving it a quick sanding, I wiped it down and painted it white using a roller paint brush.
I taped off the legs at a certain point to keep it wooden, because I wanted to add a fun dipped color to the bottom to add a bit more interest.
After removing the painters tape, I allowed the bench to dry for a couple of hours, then added more painters tape above the area that I intended on added the blue dipped legs. This area covers part of the white painted area, that’s why is important to make sure its dried pretty well.
After drying, I was able to bring my DIY wooden bench inside my entryway to style it. I love it so much in this space!
The bottom baskets are for my sons shoes.
The power of paint never ceases to amaze me!
This makeover was completed in a matter of just a few hours. So make sure that the next time you are in your local thrift store, you think of all of the potential! You just never know where it can take you!

So that’s it. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
