weekend gardening!

06/26/2011 § Leave a comment

Worked outside this weekend.

I had picked up a simple bench from a cafe that was closing, and sanded and whitewashed it.

– Sand the wood with orbital sander.

– wipe the dust with wet towel – at the same time wetting the grains.

– mix white paint with water (I did 1/2 water, 1/2 paint).

– brush on, wipe off where needed.

– enjoy!

Easy to do, less than 30 mins and great to have a seat to relax between the work.

Resting on the refinished bench with Milan and Noni.

Momo and I spent the whole afternoon pulling out weeds, cutting away the overgrown vines that seemed to be alive and today he sprayed some more area with RoundUp.

It’s coming along!
