Garden Bench Makeover ~ Garbage to Gorgeous™

2 Materials
24 Hours
I love a good makeover and I love things that are free! I found this bench on the side of the road, waiting for the trash. It was just crying out, "Save me! Save me!" How could I resist? I decided it needed a beachy makeover.
Here is the quick video to see how it all come together!
1.  Clean the bench and let it dry.  I used dish soap and some bleach to get it nice and clean.

2. Then you want to prime it.
Keep going! You want to prime top and bottom!
3. Then you get to start painting
4. Then you get to start painting and the fun begins!
You can really see it come together with your colors. Figure it will take at least two coats.
Then you can put it out in the garden.
Don't forget some fun decorative pillows!!!
If you like furniture makeovers, you might also like this outdoor table that was destined for the trash and then transformed into an emoji table!
