Refinished Old tables for the Front Porch.

Those 3 white tables inspired me to clean and rearrange the front porch.
 
 They were all stained brown when I bought them from a resale shop downtown for a total of $55.00. I was in FL when I saw them posted on FB. I know the owners and I asked one of them if she could hold them for me and that I would pay and pick them up when I got back in town, which I did. I like the solidity and heaviness of the wood. They sat in the garage for a while until I decided to paint them last week.
 There they are all painted white. I only used a regular cheap prime and paint spray paint. I did not have to sand them and they covered beautifully. I did not want to spend a lot of money since they were just going to sit outside.
 Then I distressed them a little, only a little, and waxed them.

 It took me about 30 min. per day for three days to work on them and then they were ready to be moved to the front porch.




 Here is the other side of the front porch. When I get in the mood, I think I will paint the pair of bamboo occasional tables white too. You can't see the other one but it is on the other side of the rocking chair.


 
 

 I like that little swing. I placed 2 pumpkin candles on it.
 See that hanging plant? Does anybody know what it is called? I bought it last spring from a plant nursery and it keeps producing babies which I replant so I have them all over. I could never grow any hanging plant here because I seldom come to the front to water. I thought this will  be perfect here because it does not like to be watered too much. I have only seen one of them produce little white flowers on a very long stem, which resembled an orchid.
 Here is a close up.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I really appreciate you all especially the hostesses.
