Rescued Bench

This Bench has definitely seen better days. My dad brought it home many years ago and it provided a great place to sit for a long time. Then boards started to splinter and warp and break, the wood grayed, and it was retired to the barn............. where I found it and gave it a new purpose.

Using exterior spray paint that I had on hand (I didn't worry about overspray), I just went to work painting. At first it was one color, but that just didn't seem fun, so I went back over the still wet paint with every color that I had and Ta da!!!! A multicolored bench that works perfectly at the end of the yard near the fire pit. It is the perfect place to sit and watch the fire die down late in the evening...
