Refinished Bench Americana Chalk Paint

Sharing is caring!

This refinished bench has been on my list to update for some time. I’ve had it for about 15 years. It finally received a fresh new look with chalk paint!

Like most of you, I love using chalk paint to update furniture for many reasons. It is great that you don’t need to prime it, the finish looks great sanded or left as is & the colors are gorgeous. I will always be an Annie Sloan fan, but lately because of cost & convenience I have been using Americana Chalk Paint and have been very happy with it. I have been wanting to update this beautiful deacon’s bench that I have had for about 15 years. I just felt the stenciling was outdated and didn’t really go in my new bedroom.

I decided to use the color Serene that I used on my dining room table. However, rather than leave it as is, I decided to add this great Paris stencil in white chalk paint.  The before & after is really amazing. Very inexpensive, easy way to update pieces!

Isn’t the Create pillow adorable? I found it at a cute home decor store on clearance!




Here is the before. I added the vine stencil a few years back. Remember when vines were really popular? It definitely needed an update!

I hope you enjoyed this refinished bench update! Check out a faux fur bench update here.
