Update your entryway by adding a trendy new color and fabric to your bench. It's as easy as 1-2-3 with a can of spray paint in your favorite color.

PREPARE: Always work in a well-ventilated area and cover the floor with a drop cloth to protect it from overspray. Remove the old seat.

PAINT: Shake the spray paint in Modern Mint for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Then, hold the can 8-12” away from the bench and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion. Apply 2-3 light coats to the entire bench a few minutes apart. 

FINISH: Let everything dry completely for 24 hours. Add new fabric to the bench seat using a staple gun and reattach the seat.

TIP: Use of a primer & topcoat provides added protection and longer-lasting color. We recommend 2X Ultra Cover Primer in White and Clear Topcoat.
