Outdoor painted bench makeover

It’s been a while since I’ve done a good before and after. I have an outdoor painted bench makeover to share with you today!

While leaving an eye Dr. appt a few weeks ago, I drove by a house that had some wood lawn furniture in the trash. I can never pass up a good roadside find!

I had the perfect spot on the deck for it and a little table that needed a little love next to it.

I also had some left over outdoor paint from another project. I really love using deck and concrete paint for outdoor furniture. It really adheres and can take the elements.

The bench was a little chippy as you can see in the picture (It looks like bird poop, I swear it isn’t.). Since it was going to be outside, I just painted over the chippi-ness.

It was an easy makeover. I picked up outdoors pillows and cushions on sale at Target.

We had a little rain as you can tell. I think it was going sideways last night.

But it ended up looking really cute! And I gave the little,metal side table a fresh coat of paint as well.

The outdoor painted bench makeover is the perfect fit as we needed extra seating.

Gray painted bench makeover and deck garden view

I love sitting outside in the morning before anyone is up in my house. There is something about the morning quiet in the Midwest that I just love.

There were two other chairs I wish I had grabbed, but I don’t think I could have gotten them in the car. Hopefully some one else picked them up and also had a good furniture makeover.

Cone flowers and hostas

Behind the bench area is where I have my cone flowers. It’s nice to sit there because sometimes you can catch a very light sweet smell.

View of gravel paths

And I love this view from the deck too. I can see my gravel path and raspberries. Ignore the black bucket, it’s holding the spot for the Serviceberry I am going to be planting there. I didn’t want someone falling into the hole and breaking something before we out it in.

I love an easy makeover that just takes a few coats of paint!
