  • This is very inspiring!Nicely explained. Very successful! One of my summer projects is to create a visiting area in my back yard. I have a cast iron park bench. I plan to paint bench metal sides in a cheerful color. And sand and seal the wood. I have some other wrought iron pieces to create a visiting garden area that will be painted in coordinating colors.Maybe some planters etc
