I am finishing of our courtyard area and have been painting the final coats needed for the benches there. I have also started the third coat on the flower bench. This bench has already had two coats of the green and now gets its first coat of burgundy. I will give it a second coat and then lightly sand and bring the green through. Yes I am learning to paint and also learning to distress. The lovely thing about this is my youngest daughter is joining in and has done several coats with me. It is so much nicer working together.
