Outdoor Bench Re-Do

I have never done a post about re-doing furniture before. I usually only look at stamping blogs but lately I have been in blog heaven. I am addicted to blogs about decorating ( always have wanted to be an interior designer). My eyes get buggy at night because I can't stop going from blog to blog. One of my favorite blogs is Mustard Seed Creations. I also love all of the blogs she has as her favorites. Ugh! So much to look at and only so many hours in the day. Anyway, she does a post on Fridays that anyone who has done a furniture re-do can link to her blog. I have never done a link party before and I am not quite sure how to do it. In my determination to learn more about blogging and become a better blogger I thought I would try it. Since I just re furbished my worn out bench on my front porch I thought it was a good time to break out of the box.


This is the whole front porch before. In all it's glory with the bird poop and dead flowers. I have been waiting for nicer weather to do this. But, it seems that it is never going to get below 100 degrees in Arizona this year so I just couldn't take it anymore.

Here it the after! I love it! So much better and I love the color, as red is my favorite. I bought red spray paint and sprayed the entire bench. I had some brown paint and just rubbed it all over the whole bench rubbing some of the brown off in areas to give it contrast and then sprayed polyurethane over the whole thing.

This is the whole porch after! No more bird poop, new planters and plants. I even washed all the dust off the door and cleaned the windows. Then I had to take a dip in the pool. I can't wait for some fall weather. I am so jealous of all of you that are getting cooler temps.
Well I hope your Friday is awesome!

I linked up to mustard seed creations and just a girl!
