Reclaimed Door Bench by Hester van Overbeek

Painter in Residence Hester van Overbeek built this bench from an old reclaimed door. The finished look is rustic with a Scandinavian feel.

Hester began by sawing her door into five pieces, which she simply screwed together to make a standing bench. Hover over the image to see how she achieved this! After sanding the rough edges, Hester painted the bench with Chalk Paint® in Pure using the Annie Sloan Flat Brush. She then applied Chalk Paint® in Amsterdam Green to the edges. She finished the whole piece with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax to protect it.

To add comfort, colour and pattern to the bench, Hester made seat cushions using Annie Sloan fabric.

Hester built this bench for her book, Made With Salvaged Wood. Pick up a copy to see a step-by-step tutorial, with added tips and tricks from Hester, on how to make it.
