Sometimes when a trend or style really clicks with me, I’m like a dog with a bone and won’t let it go. Right now, ombré is my weakness, and I find myself saying on a regular basis, “Could we just have it, you know, fade from light to dark, sort ombré-style?” I know I need to let it go, but when I see benches like this, I immediately think of all the things I’d like to attempt to spray paint the same way.
This bench from Anthropologie has been lacquered with an ombré finish, but the first thing I thought when I saw it was thrift store paint project! I’m definitely going to try to find a similar chair this week and mimic the look. I’m sure it’s significantly more difficult than I think, but I’m going to see what I can do with my own two hands. If you’ve got $1500 burning a hole in your pocket, you can pick up this gorgeous blue bench right here. If not, I’ll keep you up to date on my ombré experiment . . . xo, grace
