Here's the before and after:
I'm almost embarrassed to show that "before" photo! Here's the steps I took to take my potting bench from ghastly to gorgeous. First, get rid of the junk and assess what needs to be done.
First a coat of primer ...
Then a first coat of blue. Why blue? Because that's what I had, silly! Remember? I'm using what I have on hand. LOL!
I have had these garden pots for several years, although they became blue just last summer when I loaned them out as table decor for my nephew's graduation party.
The watering can was rescued from a neighbor's trash when they moved two years ago, and I spray painted it with Rustoleum Key Lime Ultra Coverage 2X paint. (Love that paint!)
So ... behold my new potting bench! Stay tuned for the second half of my project - a much tougher job than this one.
