This holiday weekend has been one of yard work, pool time, and a couple of fun garden projects. When I took the bench off of the front porch that had been there for years, I just could not bear to get rid of it just yet. Who cares that it is rotting and grows mushrooms in its cracks, I love it. I am pretty attached as it has been on our front porch for about 20 years and also Jeff and his Dad made it for me.
I wanted to add a "gardeny" type quote to the back of the bench so I Google searched garden quotes and found this one and painted it on with a bright yellow. Although, I couldn't have made this painting perfect if I tried, but I really was going for a more whimsy look.
Next came out my handy dandy sanded to weather up the paint a bit and make it look like this bench has been in my garden for a while. I think I love my bench even more now that it is pink. Now I just hope that it will last for a couple of more years before it completely disintegrates.
