Hi, I just finished redoing a little rustic-y garden bench I bought years ago. I had repainted it when I bought it but it's an outside piece so it got very worn and not in the cute way. I did it all free hand so it's not perfect lines but I'm very happy with how it turned out. Now I have to repaint the porch, as you can see  Grin Buffalo's winters are pretty hard on paint. Lemme know what you think.

A spray polyurethane might protect your paint job from the elements.

I did spray it. The other one lasted about 4 or 5 years which is pretty good for Buffalo, we get some crazy extreme weather.  Smiley
