I bought a weathered old bench at an auction back in March. It's a bit worn, but has good bones. One of these days, my hubby will probably redo it, but for now, I just wanted to use it in the yard for a bit of color.
I started my redo by spray painting the metal bits black. They had been a dark green.
Then I brushed on the blue - Behr Ultra in Glass Sapphire. See this post for my bench inspiration.
I'm hoping to find two planters to put on each side of the bench. A couple of ferns or pretty flowers would look nice there. I see this bench from the windows on the back of my house. I hope to keep improving that view over time.
