On Mother's Day, Memere complained that she missed the swing that used to be on the back porch. Mom had to take it down when she gutted the back porch. Mom was planning on painting it.
Since yesterday afternoon turned out nice, mom started sanding the swing. Here is the before photo.
Mom took all the hardware off (some of it she had to hacksaw off because people painted over it). She also took the arms apart to sand them better, and to put it together tighter.
Mom is planning on painting most of it the same blue as the back porch, except for the slats. Those will be the cream color like on mom's bureau.
Mom was also thinking of painting the post between the arm and the seat the cream color as well. Then she will put a piece of foam on the seat and cover it with a nice blue and white fabric she has and finish it off with some nice nail head trim. What do you think?
And of course, while mom was doing that, Lucky and I were enjoying the sunshine. We're not dumb. We let mom do all the work.
