Reloved garden bench

Our garden is a spring garden, currently full of tulips – beautiful.


The spring weather is encouraging us all out into the garden. My husband is working hard, on Wednesday he trimmed back part of the garden to reveal a rather collapsed bench. I didn’t quite capture the moment before it was dismantled but you can tell from these pictures the condition it was in.

White hammerite paint was found in the shed:)

Metal bench revamp

My husband replaced the wood, with the tot choosing the paint colour. I love the colour:) A trip to a DIY store provided wood, screws and paint for £18.

I am delighted with the result of this revamp – a fabulous transformation.

  1. A great revamp, love it! Was it a special kind of paint used?
    I have a couple of furniture pieces that I picked up that I still havent worked on! HAve you tried chalk paint before? Is it any good?

  2. Oh wow – great job – I have one upside down in the garden which, after years of re-varnishing, is finally rotted, rusty and, I thought useless, but I might just see if we could salvage it in a similar fashion.

  3. Oh what a lovely bench it is now. Looks perfect. Love the colour and I bet your tot is especially pleased with his involvement. (off to check what is lurking under our overgrown bushes) #ThriftyThursday

  4. Oh wow, I love the color. Great job with the upcycling. 🙂 I can imagine garden benches with that kind of paint color. It would be amazing.
