My youngest daughter decided that she would like her room repainted for her 16th birthday. While I LOVED the idea of saving some money, there was much to be done before painting could commence. She and I made a deal. Her father and I would paint her room as long as she cleaned and decluttered A LOT. She got right to work. One of the things that she wanted to throw away was this bench that she had made in 7th grade.
I was ABSOLUTELY not going to 'throw it away' and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. It was going to become a Read to Someone bench in my classroom. So then I got right to work. So far, I've only primed it and painted it white.
I'm between ideas for the rest of it. I used to paint B.C. (before children) but it's been quite awhile...20 years to be exact! I've never used Mod Podge before but I've heard good things about it. I just don't know if it would hold up to being sat on and stepped by many children. Anybody have any good advice?
