For this week’s makeover reveal, we took on a client’s entryway decor! She had a specific vision for the pieces she wanted, and brought us this cute little piano bench she found in her shed. It was quite beaten up and had a terribly crooked leg, but it definitely had great potential. She also found a mirror at a local thrift store that had little details, perfect for highlighting.

But the topping to this week was a shelf she wanted custom-made as decor and to hang coats! We hadn’t made this particular shelf before, but had put together shelves in the past so we knew it would be a piece of cake!
It was easy to construct by joining our pine boards with our Kreg Jig, and then gluing the 2 corbels on for added strength and character. Once it was put together, we primed and then painted it the same color as the bench and mirror. All that was left was to screw on the hooks and a French Cleat on the back for hanging.
Vicki did wonders with the piano bench that was really beat up. She took the top off, filled deep gouges, and sanded the entire piece. She also had to cut an extra wood piece and glue it in place to hold the wobbly bent leg.
Then came the paint! Our client wanted gray for the base of the pieces. We decided to accent the bench and the mirror with black wax since they had some ornate details to them. The shelf stayed that beautiful french gray color to add some contrast.
They all came out just beautifully and we are so happy to have been given the opportunity not only to re-style a couple pieces, but to completely construct a custom shelf to fit our client’s needs for their home.
We were able to put these in Vicki’s entry so we could share some pretty pictures with you all before they went to their forever home. They actually went really well with her rugs! Too funny!
