French Laundry Fun!

I found this nice old mahogany piano bench from the 40's at a thrift store ...  It had a hideous red cover and a scarred finish, but great lines.

I painted it a soft off white and then using the Citrasolve method, added a French Laundry graphic I had on hand, and Fleur De Lis I found on Graphics Fairy, along with computer font words I lifted from the laundry emblem.

Because I used a vintage flour sack that had been bleached out, and the Citrasolve method is a bit imperfect, It ended up with an old laundry bag look!   Here it is shown with the apothecary jars I am taking to Fallow Field Farm this weekend.  If you are local (Utah County) information about the sale is on my right side bar.

Of course this sweet bench is also going along to Fallow Field Farm!!  Can't wait to share pictures of the sale, its a first for me. 
Oh and if you are reading this first thing Monday morning in Utah you can catch a segment about FFF on Studio 5 this morning.
