Love how some paint can just give it a whole new refreshed look. Our weather is cold down here too. Last week we were in the 100s, today we'll hit 70. Not to bad and believe me I'm grateful it's not to hot anymore.
Have a great day!

That bench is incredible, I love it. The fresh coat of paint really makes it stand out.
We turned cold again too, and windy. It seems as though winter just doesn't want to let go.

I wish you would come help me with my garden, that's one place that I struggle with designing, although my bulldog Lulu really likes to help she want's to catch all the lizards and destroys whatever is in her path, LOl, your yard looks so pretty!! Thanks for the inspiration(;

I love the bench! I can't believe how you transformed it. Now thats "vision"!

This weather is crazy! If I had to choose I prefer this week over the heat we had last week but something in between would be nice! I heard it may rain this weekend!!!

I love that bench Mo...I want to make a headboard bench like yours soon. Just waiting to finish another vintage bed I have for my daughter so I can use her old one!

The bench is gorgeous Mo. I am looking forward to the pictures of your garden. We have rain here today, but it is kind of nice. Hope your day has been a good one! Mary

Hello my friend,
What an awesome bench, chippy or otherwise. You really made a beautiful space. Isn't springtime fun? I know it can be hard work but swinging in our swing after the lawn is freshly mowed is simply devine! No wonder God started it all in a garden!
