PORCH BENCH COMPLETE

Today is Show and Tell over at Kelly,
I am going to show you a porch bench that my husband made for me and then I decorated.I was not to sure how I wanted to proceed with the decorating.I first had to do alot of sanding ,with a very coarse sandpaper and then with a very fine sandpaper.I sanded until it was smooth.Once I got it sanded I had to figure out what to do with the bench.I started learning a new craft here while back,wood burning.I decided that I would like to burn a design into the wood.So I drew me a design onto the porch bench top,then I proceeded to burn the design into the top of the porch bench.Once I had the design burned into the porch bench I stained it with a brown stain. Below is my finished work of art. Boards that husband cut out for the porch bench.It was made with 2x12 treated lumber.
Porch bench all put together.

Completed porch bench.Now I am ready for Spring so I can put it out on the porch or find a nice place out near a flower bed for it to set.
For more fun post on Show and Tell go visit Kelly over at There's no place like home.
