Beauty and the Beast Update

Update!  she choose the Beast.  Said he was perfect the bench of her dreams.

A friend of mine saw a bench my husband had built and wanted one to put at the foot of her bed.  However, she thought the one she was looking at was too pretty.  Not quite rowdy enough for her.  She wanted a beast with  a few rough edges and some hulk to him. 

So here is the beast.  Made of reclaimed wood with all his scars from his former life and nail heads showing. No pretty paint for him.

Here is beauty.  She is painted a light dove grey.  Her bench is smooth and no nail holes showing on her unblemished surface.  Her style is a little more graceful and refined.

Here are the beast and beauty together.  My friend is coming to today to take one of them to live with her.  Which would you choose?  Beauty or the Beast.  I am kind of hoping she leaves beauty for me.  Can't you just see her stenciled with a bouquet of hydrangeas in light lilac and purple gracing her seat.

I kinda like the look of old and since I'm not so good at painting, I would leave beauty to you for extra beautifying and I would take the beast. :) Have a great day! Tammy

I'd like to have beast somewhere in my house! I really like both of them.....but I don't stencil so I like the rough look :)

I HOPE SHE LEAVES BEAUTY for you, because you love her so much!!!I am guessing she wants beast as the rugged look is more what she wants...Both are awesome though and what a talent hubby has!!!

One's choice, would depend, on one's choice of decor.

You must tell us, which one she choses...

You have a handy husband! It's wonderful, isn't it???????? :-)

Me too, I would want you to hook the bench up behind a pick-up truck on a chain and drag it down an old rocky road for several miles. The beaten up the better.
LOVE the bench!!!
