I don’t remember what the original color was of this bench that’s sitting in our backyard. We’ve had it forever. I was doing yard work Sunday and said “Enough, this has got to change. ”
The iron scroll on the sides ares pretty rusted. Same with the backside…
My neighbor helped me carry it out onto the grass between our yard and the golf course. I scrubbed the areas where moss is growing, rinsed it down and called it good.
I was already headed to Home Depot for flowers so I made a stop in the paint aisle. I have to admit I am a newbie at this. In fact, I really don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m having fun trying and as I said in previous posts, Rust Oleum has become my new best friend. Here’s what I bought.
Let me say I went into this with no intent to tape or use a brush and because I did this outside I can only guess there may be a bug or two hidden somewhere!
First step, at least my first step, prime the wood and if you get a bit on the iron, no biggie!
Spray paint the wood with the claret wine color and try to aim carefully. I applied a couple of coats. This is after the first coat.
Now to spray the iron. Now remember, no tape so no comments!
I sprayed it with a Rust Oleum Gloss spray. Here’s the final look…..
All in all I’m pretty pleased! Have you tried to spray paint anything? I warn you, it’s addictive!
