Spring Bench

This week grandma and I decided to hit the thrift store.  We haven't been in awhile because of her not feeling well.  :(  We saw this bench and we knew we could make it cute.  So into our cart it went!  It was just so drab and screaming for a springtime makeover!
I sent the hubs to get us some ASCP in Arles, Florence and Duck Egg.  He goes for us because I get it down by  it is down by his work which is really out of the way for me.  He is a keeper for sure. Anyways enough about my wonderful husband.  On to the paint.  Oh my my, let me tell you I love all three of them.  I couldn't put my paint brush down today.  I kept wanting to give makeovers!  These three colors make me so excited for spring and summer.   
I painted the bench in Arles, Duck Egg and Old White and gave it a coat of dark wax.  It is now ready for the Sugar Plum Bazaar that is this weekend!  Crossing fingers that our weather cooperates and snows just a lil bit rather than the 6-12" they are predicting .
What do you all think?  Does it make you excited for spring?  
Tomorrow I will be showing you more on the chalk board shutter shown in the picture above!
