We had a party this past Saturday, and the anticipation of that party led us to actually finish some projects we've been stalling on for the past few months. One of those projects included repainting a swing from our yard. The swing had been neglected for years. It was taken down in early April with the intention of painting it within the week. Instead, it sat around for months in our yard, a random relic of our busyness.
It looks so much better now. Eventually it will be adorned by some flowers; we ripped out many of the flowers/weeds surrounding the bench because they were too cumbersome to keep up. I'm thinking hydrangeas?
