Sprucing up the yard.. #2 ( Garden Bench )

I have been working on some different outdoor projects and "Sprucing up the Yard" as I have been
calling it..

I decided to break out the paint.
Project in mind.. The Garden Bench, and it was long overdue.

Nothing says come sit a while, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors like that wonderful
welcoming bench that looks like it saw it's better day, many years ago... right?   not so much.  :o)

So I used navy blue spray paint to spray the iron work.. and white to paint the wood,
but that didn't work for me, so I dry brushed white onto the blue for a more distressed look..

It really brings out the detail..


I also gave the front door a new coat of white paint..

It looks much more crisp and clean with my updated wreath..

 You can see my Wreath Makeover HERE.

So have you been working on any outdoor projects lately?
