The Bench Is Red
The ugly old thing which looked like it was going to fall apart if you sat on (it felt like it too...) is now red. I took the time to spray paint it this weekend and I like it even more. It doesn't look so wobbly anymore AND I have a piece of painted furniture.
It didn't need to be sanded, the surface was pretty rough already. I just wiped it down and then used a candy apple red spray paint. One can covered it all - if I was really ambitious I would go out and buy another can and put another layer on. Since it was wobbly, I tightened up the legs too.
AWESOME. Well, kind of. I'm easily amused.
