Little Wooden Window Bench

Tracy at Tracy’s Trinkets and Treasures had her hubby make a nice little wooden window bench for her dinning area.  This is such a sweet project:

My husband was tired of me nagging asking him to build me a bench for my bay window in the dining area so Friday we went to Lowe’s and got the wood to build it.
Knock Off Wood had the plans to build the bench that I had in mind.  You can see the post here.
After getting all of the wood pieces cut
my husband stayed up late to get it finished for me.

I think he did a great job.  After buying $30 worth of wood my sister comes by and informs me she has one of these in her attic that she bought for $5 at a garage sale.  Oh well.  I would rather have one my husband made just for me.  Plus it lets me talk about him on here which I told you he likes.
Ok here it is painted. 
Sometimes I think my glazing technique just makes things look dirty, this was my 2nd paint attempt because the first green made my bench look like a baby shower mint.

But I couldn’t leave well enough alone.  I found a cool stencil at Hobby Lobby this weekend that I wanted to try. 
I got out my favorite color of stencil paint (Folk Art in wrought iron) and my favorite stencil brush.

Now that the bench is done, I need to come up with something else for him to make so I can nag some more. 
It looks great and what a good hubby for making it!  I think that the stencil adds a nice little detail to the new little wooden window bench, don’t you?
