Before and After: Heirloom Concrete

Not long after we bought our lot, we were fortunate to be given a bench and table that were in Momee's (E.W.'s maternal grandmother) yard. These two items were put in our yard here long before the foundation was laid for our home. All during the building process we rested weary bodies on the bench and placed cool drinks on the table. Although we like the 'loved and well-used' appearance of things, these pieces had gone beyond shabby chic! A coat of paint and some new plantings go a long way, don't you agree?

    I love these picnic tables and benches.
    Yours look so much better with a new coat of paint! Gotta appreciate what paint can do!
