Re: refresh and paint old bench

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @RobynK. It's super to have you join us, and many thanks for sharing your project.


What a lovely piece you've created there! I'm such a huge fan of upcycling furniture and giving them new life. You've really done a sensational job, and the bench suits your balconies look perfectly.


Do you happen to have any before images?


Well done!
