See!? Why toss this cool handmade bench? Paint it!
A busy week! And happy belated Father’s day to you all!
We found a beautiful barn red color at the local hardware store to paint some of our cinder block outbuildings. The paint was oil based and when we researched the “best paint” for the job we received some conflicting information, so we decided to go ahead with the project. First, we used wire brushes to scrape off excess dirt, then we painted in the cracks with a brush. Finally we rolled over the blocks with a roller. Remember: cinder blocks suck up paint! We used almost a whole can just on the facade of the spring house!
One problem I ran into was that I couldn’t reach the tippy top! The ground was too unstable for a ladder…
