June 2021: Mike Restores their old Bench & End Tables

In June 2021 I restored our old bench. After two decades of decay, it was in bad shape.

I also restored some end table that we used with it.

Here is the finished product.



For texturing I used 3 colors of green, and 3 colors of red.



I also restored two chairs Lisa and I bought about 2005 before a party with Jennifer Hill at Raleys of all places. The table fell apart but these all steel and iron chairs lasted.

Notice the metal wicker actually looks like real wicker! I used 5 shades to do that.

Outside our dining room looked like this…

I refinished some wood with the same stain as the bench. I also bought black lattice and painted it similar to the leaves on the bench.

I used the same colors to restore our hose reel in the front yard.


I also had fun reclaiming an old cast iron decoration for around the pool.
