My little corner of Kentucky is located in the far west, that little chunk that looks like it could easily be pinched right off. Truth is, we are very close to a lot of other states, Tennessee to the south is about 40 miles away, Missouri - to the east - might be 40 miles as well. Illinois is about 20 miles from me and Indiana is less than 100. Nice places to visit, but I think I'll stay in KY.

Here's my house, parts of the front:

And down the west side:

Sometimes I plant in containers. Here are a few of them at various times as well as my sweet wisteria, all in the front yard:

Anytime, Mary. I wish we really could visit.
But don't go away, there's more to come. I just had to take a break for awhile.

Are they just regular porch metal & wood chairs? What kind of paint did you use? Can you send me the link to the stories? I want to do that with a bench I have..

I think this article about covers it all. Can't remember where I wrote the other one. Maybe for Examiner.com, but I'm not sure and it was years ago.

I'm pretty sure I used Krylon spray paint, the kind for outdoor use. The color was cobalt blue, but it might have had a different name. I think I might touch them up this year, maybe make the old bench into a planter. They are pretty rickety now, they've had a lot of use and probably too much weather.

Yes, it's just regular metal and wood, a bench, a table and two chairs. They really don't match because I bought them from different places, different years.

Sharon - THANK YOU! That's exactly what I was looking for! My garden bench is pretty old & pretty beat up.. I was thinking of replacing the wood slates in it & painting it, but wasn't sure if it would work. Now I have proof that it will! Now I just have to decide on a color... I have that garden bench that's going in the back yard & a porch glider that desperately needs to be sanded/painted..

You are welcome, Toni. It's been 4 years now and the picture above, the one where you can see the blue glass globe, was taken last spring. I haven't done anything to the furniture except to move it all to the front. This might be the year when it gets a new coat of paint, not sure of the new color, though.

I also have a glider on my back deck, and some benches. I'm thinking about doing some kind of matching thing with them ~ maybe not the same as the old ones out front. Something new and a little different.

Me too, Vic, and you can't tell very well but the table is the same color. It works well in that little dark alcove, just about the only shady spot in my entire yard.

I can go out there and sit at night, which I love to do, but when they were in back under the maple tree, I had to walk to the top of the hill to get to them. Not something I wanted to do at night. And besides, I love that little shady area beside the arches.
