Iron bench

My friend’s cousin donated a set of iron outdoor furniture that had been sitting in the salt air at Manteo for years. It took 5 of us (mostly them, although I helped some) two weeks of scraping, wire brushing, steel wooling, priming and painting to get them back into good condition. This one is my favorite, the most comfortable, and it’s where I’ve spent an hour or so almost every evening for the last few weeks watching the light turn blue. And occasionally rounding up the dog who tends to wander off despite her best intentions.
