You know what’s awesome?! It was SEVENTY TWO degrees here yesterday. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and it was glorious. And you better believe I was loving every single second of it. We’ve actually had pretty nice weather lately and I’m soaking it in while I can. Especially with all the craziness happening right now, it’s the simple things like a bright blue sky and sunshine that make my heart so happy. I’m trying to focus on those small things and keep a grateful mindset as much as I can right now. Anyway, enough rambling about the weather! Today I wanted to share a cute wooden bench I just painted and my staircase landing decor! Before we hop into it, let me show you what my bench looked like BEFORE I painted it:
It’s a cute little bench, right?! I ordered this on clearance from Target a few weeks ago (unfortunately it’s no longer available) but I honestly didn’t love the color. It just felt blah in this space. I wanted more contrast, so I painted it with my favorite black paint–Wrought Iron by Benjamin Moore. Here’s how it looks now:
SO MUCH BETTER. The black paint really warms up this little landing area and gives this whole space more character. I love the contrast with the white walls! It adds a fun boho vibe to this space.
This is small bench, but it’s the perfect size for this landing area at the top of our stairs. If you’ve been around for a while you might remember that I used to have my bamboo clothing rack in this spot, but it just felt like a bit too much in this area. I’m loving the little bench now and it’s actually really handy for the kids. They love sitting there and playing!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope you are doing well and hanging in there. Sending lots of love to you! xo
