Wedding Guest Book: Modified Fancy X Bench

x-bench-progress

 

I was honored this past March to be Matron of Honor in one of my best friend’s wedding, and as a gift to the happy couple I made them a guest book bench. I wanted this one to look extra special. I started out with Ana White’s Fancy X Bench plans and made a couple of modifications. I reduced the overall length to 54″ to sit at the foot of a bed or under a table, and used only 2 pedestals instead of 3. To make the top better for signing, I decided to substitute the planked 2×6’s for a flat “hobby board” that was 15″ wide, purchased at Lowes. I framed it out with some 1×2’s to make it look chunkier.

Once it was built I gave it three coats of white semi-gloss latex, and then drew up the art for the center. It’s the same font used on the wedding invitations. I wish I had thought to take a photo of the signed bench at the wedding! But I was a little bit busier at the moment. I’m really proud of this pretty little bench. As I received in one of the messages on my own wedding bench, I hope it sees the butts of many friends for years to come!

    How did you get the design on the bench. Is it stenciled on, painted on, stamped on?
    THANKS SO MUCH!!!

      It’s painted. I print out the design on computer paper at the size I want, lay it over the piece in place and then trace it with an unclicked pen to create an indention. Then I fill it in with paint and a small brush
