before & after: holly’s bench + alyssa’s dresser

d*s reader holly myers found this beat up bench at the clovis new mexico country club, a golf course her mom grew up using. it sat untouched for many years, but a move to a new home inspired holly to give it new life. after removing the warped and rotted wood, holly created a new upholstered seat and stained a piece of wood to re-attach as the back. i love the new look- and that electric blue frame. thanks for sharing, holly!

i love the way alyssa zuka updated her “super plain 80s childhood dresser”. these colorful circles are so bold and simple, but make such a huge difference. great work, alyssa!


Holly – that bench is spectacular! I love the bold colors. I’m also loving the wall color. Do you mind sharing the shade and brand? Thanks!


that bench is great! love the color choices, what a fabulous makeover.


Very cool dresser. I don’t usually care for painted furniture but this is nice exception.


Thanks for all the nice comments!
The wall color is Sandy White from Benjamin Moore. I am not sure about the bench paint color, I have some left over in my garage, I will check and let you know!


Hi Holly, just curious at the size of the frames you used on your wall. I really like the effect you created and I’m hoping to try something similar. Thanks :)
