Bench Finished FINALLY!! And new Coat Rack!!

So I started my bench re-vamp a while ago when the weather was still nice. I got tangled up in about 5 different projects and I lost steam.

Do you ever do that?
I am the QUEEN of great intentions but also a master at procrastination.
I have said it before and I will say it again, it’s a miracle anything ever gets finished by me because I have a ten track mind.
Well I am pleased to say I finished this beauty and although it took me Foreva I love how it turned out. Oh and BOnUs I also finished the coat rack I have been meaning to do since we moved back in the Little Yellow house in September.
I know right *sigh*
but now I have a great functional entry way and since I don't have a coat closet I have room for my people to hang their stuff so it doesn’t clutter the teeny tiny space left once everyone is inside the house:)

So here's the breakdown... (My Fav part)

Bench *free had it for years (originally 25.00 on clearance)
paint * free had it all from previous projects
glaze* free also had from previous projects

Coat Rack
Old weathered fencing * 2.00 dollars
10.00 at a yard sale (thank you Jodi!) Oh and I still have about 8 full panels left, well 6 if you count that I gave 2 to my mom last year. So if you count what I paid per what I used it broke down to about 2 bucks per panel so that makes this project about 2 dolla my people.
hangers* 2.02 each for a total of 10.10

Total for my new entry way... $12.10
