the "before" pic with the peeling paint
all stripped and sanded..this was a big chore...
here it is all done...a coat of Kilz primer and 2 coats of creamy white exterior latex. I decided not to try to distress it since it will sit in my covered patio year round. The PNW weather will do it for me. I picked this amazing wood sign at Molly Mo's Antique Faire, it is perfect for the bench!
I also have not decided if I want to actually use it as a bench or a place for plants. It would be perfect for my fuchsia's and impatiens that like nice warm shade in the summer.
I would love to hear my blogger friends ideas????
