Garden Bench Makeover ~Garbage to Gorgeous™ Episode #18 ~ Craft Klatch

If you watch me with any regularity, you know I love a good makeover and I love things that are free!  I found this bench on the side of the road, waiting for the trash.  It was just crying out, “Save me!  Save me!”  How could I resist?

You will need:
–  An old bench
–  Primer
–  Paint
–  Paintbrush

I wanted to go for a colorful beachy feel.  Here is the quick video to see how I did it!


1.  Clean the bench and let it dry.  I used dish soap and some bleach to get it nice and clean.

2.  Prime it.

Keep going…

…and keep going…

3.  Paint it.  This is where the fun comes in because you get pick fun colors and the transformation really starts to take place.  Figure it will take at least two coats.

4.  Now you let it dry and put it in your garden!

5.  Don’t forget to add some fun decorative pillows!

That’s it!  Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
