This garden bench was a free hand-me-down from hubby’s grandparents. It’s seen some better days, and def. needed some work.
I debated painting the whole thing, but then just decided to restain it. I washed it with the hose and used regular old minwax.
I was using a paint brush, so somebody else wanted to paint, too. I let him “paint” with water on his bench. I missed the photo op, but I turned around at one point to see him sucking water out of the paintbrush. That was the same day that he licked the nasty inside of the dishwasher as I was loading it.
So anyway, after I stained it, it looks like this. Dirty. Maybe I should have tried to get to bare wood first? I dunno. But I don’t like it. So what do you think? Paint the whole thing black? Paint the wood a different color? Try with the stain again? Any ideas?
