We had one more beautiful day here, but I think the forecast is rain for the rest of the week, so my “real” Garden Party is going to have to wait! Until then, we can all imagine it is sunny outside. We are having a lovely summer supper with a good friend, husband, or significant other….and you need something to serve that food on!
Here is what I started with:
This little guy was in BAAAD shape. Dirty, warpy wood, and basically not loved by anyone. I gave him a thorough cleaning, then painted the first coat in a mixture of Grey and Blue. I finished it off with CeCe Caldwell’s Carolina Sun Yellow. I distressed it just enough so the underlying colors would show through.
It got a new top too! The wood was really not looking pretty on top, even with the new paint job. I cut a piece of Aluminum Siding. I gave it that “aged” look with a fabulous metal aging product called “Jax”. You can order it HERE. It is really easy to do, and the finish ages in just minutes. Post coming on that one soon!
Since I want this piece to be able to “live” outside and withstand the elements. I sealed the entire piece with several coats of a spray outdoor Polyurethane.
Now it is ready for service!
And just in case, you haven’t seen enough. Here they are, all three of them together, posing for a picture:
Here is to sunny days ahead and outdoor dining!
