When we moved house, not only did we inherit a garden full of beautiful plants but we were also left a table and six chair outdoor dining set, along with a three-seater swing seat.

We decided that, although the set was old, it was still solid and too good to throw out.

Last week, as a change and a rest from internal decorating, I prepared each item for painting by sanding it down thoroughly and then painting with two or three coats of Cuprinol Garden Shades in “Fresh Rosemary”.

Here are the “after” photos..

By complete coincidence, Aldi were selling Weatherproof Garden Furniture Covers this week, for £4.99. They are just the job!

And before anyone asks… NO I haven’t started work on swing-seat yet!
