Bold DIY Marimekko Bench For Your Outdoor Space

This old wooden bench was renovated with the use of a creative print by Finnish company Marimekko. Wanna know how? Prepare an old wooden bench, white wood paint, a sander, paint and glue brushes, Marimekko napkins, PVA glue, a crystal clear yacht (or outdoor) varnish. First, prepare the bench by sanding and then painting white. Second, prepare your napkins by separating them so that only the top printed ply is used (most napkins are 3 ply). Then tear your flowers out, it helps if you wet the napkin where you tear. It is better to tear rather then cut the napkins as you get a feathered edge, which blends in better.
