When we bought this place, I decided it would be good to have up here so we brought it up one weekend. We used it at the kitchen/garage door for putting our shoes on. It needed some TLC though as the years had taken their toll. I sanded it and filled in the holes. Then it sat while other projects took over.
This weekend, it was finally its turn. I primed it with my favorite primer: Zinesser. After that dried, I pulled out my paint I used on the exterior of the front and back doors: Benjamin Moore's exterior paint in Wethersfield Moss. It got two good coats. Much better!

The finished bench:
Although it will continue to be our kitchen/garage door bench, the exterior paint will allow it to be placed outside if we so desire.
I'll share some of my small projects next time. Have a blessed week!
