This lovely rustic sage green farmhouse bench was painted by Faye from Farm Life Best Life with the color, Sage Advice, and sealed with a combination of both Natural and Antiquing Wax. Come see how she did it!


Although this bench started out beautiful already, Faye had a vision in mind for it’s green makeover.

She began by cleaning it well and applying just two coats of Sage Advice.

She used a bit of 120 and 220 grit to lightly distress the edges and raised areas, then wiped away all of the dust to a buttery smooth finish.

Finally, to add beautiful depth as well as protection to the finish, she blended and layered Natural Wax with Antiquing Wax until she created the perfect color.
