Spray Paint an Old Bench

I bought this old bench almost 8 years ago at Menards for $25 on clearance. It was looking rough however structurely it was fine. 

I decided to give this old bench a makeover. I used the spray paint pictured. It cost a little under $4. I used two cans. 

I covered the driveway in plastic and put the bench on it and just sprayed away. (In the picture there is a bag of soil under the bench...that was because I poked a hole in the plactic and just used the bag of soil to cover the hole so the spray paint wouldn't get on the driveway). The wood soaked up a lot of the spray paint. Had I wanted the wood not to do that I could have used a spray paint primer first but I still wanted that weathered look. It turned out beautifully.
