Finally got around to painting the swing.
Took it off the chains and did some sanding. Robert had applied a polyurethane stain when he made the swing a few years ago. But it's been out in the weather ever since....so most of that stain had peeled away. I smoothed it all out so the paint would look nice. The seat is actually in excellent shape.
I got out my exterior door paint and gave the seat a couple of coats. It looks really nice - not sure why it looks like a different color in this photo. It really is painted from the same gallon can as the doors!
