An Entry Bench & Fusion Mineral Paint

Entry Bench and Fusion Mineral Paint

This bench has a new life and a new home...

Found on the side of the road under a pile of snow was a
very heavy colonial looking bench with a back. 

This bench was worth saving... 
It was old, pegged together, and solid oak. 

After removing the leatherette cushioned seat and the
back of the bench, I decided to try a new paint.

Fusion Mineral Paint is an acrylic paint that 
dries to a chalky finish with no waxing.

The paint went on smoothly and evenly. 

I was pleasantly surprised at the coverage from only one coat.

The great chunky Fusion brush made it quick 
and easy to paint the spindles. It holds a lot of paint and didn't
leave any brush strokes in the paint.

 I gave the bench a quick sanding to 
distressed the edges and my new entry bench
 was finished in no time!  

The bench is a good sturdy place to sit to put on boots and shoes.

I am thrilled with the Fusion Mineral Paint and 
so happy to be able to repurpose this bench 
and save it from the land fill.
