RE: painted bench

Oh Sassy - I LOVE it!!!...then again I'm pretty partial to anything having to do with grapes, wine, etc.!! Did you use exterior paints or just regular craft paint? You should do some coordinating stepping stone/pavers to go with it if it's going in the yard. Thanks so much for sharing the pics!!!! Keep up the great work!!

RE: painted bench

thank you paintinfool for the compliment and the great idea about the stepping stones.i think i will experiment with that idea next.to answer your quwstion,i used acrylic paints and put a sealer on it afterwards,i am waiting for it to dry before moving it.it took me about a week or so to come up with the colors,like i said this is the first time ever that i have done this!!!!!

RE: painted bench

Welcome Sassy~ great job on your first project! It looks terrific. Love the colors you chose and I like all the colorful butterflies you put in there. Was the bench a find or did you buy it with this in mind to do to it? I like paintins idea of the stepping stones. That will look great. If you haven't checked out Garden Junk forum, check it out. It's another of my favorites. And of course come back here and show us your next project!! :) ~Anj

Good way to make that bench that was not the way you liked it into a great piece you can enjoy again. And I'm sure it's more special to you since you did it yourself! ~Anj
