As promised and mentioned in my older post, we have this "ancient" glider that I planned to refinish. And we finally did it this past weekend. It was a family project, hubby and our son carried it to our backyard and me and my daughter sanded and painted it as you can see below.
And thanks to the magic of digital camera, here's what it looks like after it was painted. Funny, because when you're in the store you'd pick a color that you think you would like but once you apply it, it looks different from what you thought. I thought of painting it white but my husband discouraged me from it ... said rust will show more on white paint. Oh well, it still looks much better than before.
We carried it back to where it belonged ... our front porch. I am not real happy with the cushion, but since we were late buying cushions, all the nice designs and colors were gone. I'll see what I can do next summer.
And here's the other end of our front porch. I prefer sitting here now than our deck since porches have roofs and decks do not. It is so relaxing just to sit and read or just watch cars go by. Also, my plants in front are just starting to bloom so I'm enjoying them too.
Ok, one project down ... now if only I can make the kids wash our windows, I'll be a happy camper! lol
