Old fountain saved from the trash heap

Old Fountain Refurb

We purchased this old fountain a few years ago. It made its way with us to the new house- but we were pretty sure it would wind up in the trash heap. The fountain is made from some sort of resin that didn’t really weather well- plus the fact that it spent a year in a pile out in the elements didn’t help. It was in pretty bad shape, but I remembered how pretty it was when it was functioning and I hated to just toss it. I thought, perhaps, we could bring it back to life. Here’s what we started with- it didn’t look hopeful.

The first thing we needed to do was to clean that sucker up. The Mean Man got out the power washer and proceeded to remove the muck and rough surface.
