Hello from Olympia, WA!
My first project; a 2×4 bench to house a ceramic welcome sign acquired from a local artist at our farmers market. To avoid simply bolting it to our house’s siding, I decided to build the bench, chisel out a 1/2″ section for the sign to sit flush. The paint is Annie Sloan’s “chalk paint:” two coats of cream as a base, red back slats and purple seat slats. I assembled the bench using pocket holes and Titebond II glue.
