Give an Old Glider a New Life!

I have had an old glider, sitting outside for at least 8 years. When I downsized, it was something I kept, but it needed some TLC! The frame was fine, but the wood had almost no paint left on it and a few small pieces were missing.
Sorry I don't have a "Before", but I only needed to replace 3 small pieces of wood. Everything else, I sanded, glued any splits, filled any holes and then spray painted in the same colors as my pantry slats.
Here are the slats for the Side Tables. The blue ones are new.
Here you can see the side tables are done, and the slats are going back on, with new bolts and lock nuts.
The Finished Project!
Doesn't it look nice? Ready for a new life! The finish on the frame didn't need anything done to it, and I did add a final coat of clear polyurethane for durability.
