A simple makeover

I found this wonderful little bench at my favorite antique barn. It was marked 50% off so it was just the right fit for my bedroom and my wallet!
I have wanted a bench of some sort for the foot of our bed for a while. I loved the simple country breezy shape of this one. I wasn't too keen on the faded flat red. But, I was willing to see past that.
My original plan was to go white on this. Then it hit me! Why not use some of the leftover wall paint since this will not be sitting against the wall and our bedding will be going very light white or creams. EUREKA!
So I added a few coats of the wall color and walla!
A perfectly aqua bench for our bedroom!
My turtle seems to like it :D
