I’ve had the flu the last few days, and haven’t been feeling productive…in truth, I haven’t really left the bed. I did this project last week, when I was full of mustard, vinegar, and the rest of those vitally important condiments.
We’ve had this little bench for a few years. It has been sitting outside, weathering the elements for most of its life with us. Over the last summer, it really started to show its age. Not that five is really all that old, but honestly, if you lived outside for five years of your life, you may be looking a little worse for wear too.
Here’s progress, a little better than before, ready for another five years of hard labour outside.
Don’t actually think this one was on my to do list, but it was really nice to get done. My Little O was so happy with the bench too. He made all kinds of exclamations about the colour and how much he loved it. Yay!
Thanks again to Jules from French Fries and Pancakes for hosting our projects. Seeing what others have been doing is making me excited for more projects, and really helps to keep the momentum going (I especially love all the gardening things folks have been up to…can’t wait to get some more plants in the ground and to harvest my crops!).
