Porch Bench Makeover for Spring


This rustic bench had been collecting dust in my garage for longer than I care to admit.  I had been using  it to hold my paint supplies.  I decided to give my front porch a little refresh for spring, and thought this little bench would make a great seat by the front door.  I started by giving it a good cleaning, and then a light sanding with 220 grit sandpaper.  I sprayed two coats of Rustoleum chalked ultra matte spray paint in "Aged Gray." I lightly sanded between coats.  That was it!  This project was so easy, and my bench went from dusty garage relic to a cute addition to my front porch.   I also made some plant markers using Rustoleum Chalkboard flat black spray paint and thrifted wooden cooking utensils.  To give a little sparkle and spring color to my front door, I sprayed a quick coat of Rustoleum Pink Glitter spray paint to a thrifted umbrella and filled it with tulips.   Now I have a pretty sitting area on my front porch.
