Restored Bench

This past weekend the hubs and I restored the bench we bought a few weeks ago. You can read about it here and here. We bought two benches from a ranch that had closed down a long time ago called Thunder Horse Ranch. We are using the two of them for different purposes. Here's what it looked like before:

We sanded this one very lightly because it had this beautiful engraved THR and we really wanted to make sure to keep it. Too bad I'm a terrible blogger and forgot to take the in between pictures, especially because the sanding and staining credit goes to the hubs. AND he did it on a Saturday OUTSIDE in AZ. Major props. Well folks here is the final product:

As you can tell I'm no Martha Stewart, but I'm using it to decorate our porch.

I'm making progress, but still need to add a few more things. No big deal we've been in our house for over a year and I'm just now getting to the porch. oops.

Well stayed tuned :)
