    This was my great-grandmother's glider. Used to sit on it with her and smell the honeysuckle around her porch. It had received a couple of coats of paint over the years. I sand-blasted it and repainted it as close to the original colors as we could remember. Still lots of years left in it!

      I have one similar to this that I hope to restore. I'm thinking of powder coating it but haven't decided for sure. Good Job.
