Shabby Chic Miniature Bench (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

Soooo, I found this miniature bench and decided to turn it into a shabby chic piece of art! I won't get into too much detail about this piece, I will let the pictures show the cuteness! I will say this, however, this was originally a piece of Easter d├ęcor. The backrest looked like a row of carrots! I left the "carrot tops" exposed, because I liked the scallop edge it left, but I covered the rest (front and back) with a thin piece of wood that I had in my stash. To being with, I painted the whole bench with Martha Stewart chalk paint in the "Wedding Cake" color.  I used Prima Romance Novel paper, sewing around the perimeter and distressed the edges with a Prima distress tool. I painted the large wood word with Tim Holtz Crackle Paint in the White Picket Fence color. Then I just began layering with lots of yummy Wild Orchid Craft flowers, Prima Flowers and Petaloo Flowers. I used lots of yummy product from Renabouquets shop that by Prima, Reneabouquets Glitter Glass, Butterfly lace and a beautiful handcrafted Reneabouquets Butterfly! I will have all the links to the product I used from Reneabouquets below the pictures! I also wanted to have a little "movement" on the project, so I added some chain connected to the "Love" word with some Tim Holtz eyehooks and topped it off with a hanging key charm from Prima. Thanks for stopping by!
