Goodwill Bench, In Progress ~

So I have been playing with my Goodwill bench.
Here are a few of step along the way.
Here is the before, straight home from my local Goodwill.

Then I started by applying Liquid Sander to the legs. For the top I had to pull out my handy dandy hand sander due to the thin layer of laminate.

I then painted the legs black and stained the top with Miniwax Dark Walnut.

But I wasn't loving the wood grain on the top, so I painted it black and then lightly sanded the edges of the legs.
It still needs something else - maybe a stenciled top or maybe bag the painting and add an upholstered top....hum.

Oooh, that wood is pretty! I like it that it looks like trim. And I think a stencil would look great. Good job!

I am seeing a crown knob on the middle "faux drawer" the black and antique gold ones you find at Hobby Lobby! It looks great! Love the black, Paula
