Oh my goodness, isn't it amazing what we don't notice when we live with things
a tad too long! That was plain UGLY!
I added a vintage hook on the side.
The rusted frame before sanding and using Rustoleum Metallic Matte Nickel
followed by Metallic Aluminum and rubbed in a bit.
I found this can of Minwax Water-Based Wood Stain in my basement.
The color, Antique Jade, was exactly what I had in mind.
After applying the stain, I distressed it lightly with sandpaper.
I like the matte finish and rustic look, so I'm leaving it as is until I see how it weathers
before adding any type of sealant.
Remember when I told you about this deal at Home Depot
Here are two I purchased, trimmed and potted in my urns.
Although I've called it a potting bench, we use it as a buffet and beverage
station for get togethers more than anything.
Next week I'll show you a new idea I ran across and how I set it up for beverages.
In the meantime I'm going to enjoy the nicer view on that side of my deck!
