For the next ten days I will be entertaining house guests. Since I want to spend as much time with them as possible, but also squeeze in a visit or two with you, I decided to keep this post short and sweet.
Last week I purchased a couple of wooden Birdcage cutouts from Michael's craft store ($3.99 each) and had my 7 year old granddaughter paint them for me.
We used black chalkboard paint because it was handy, and because as silhouettes, we thought they would add a touch of whimsy to our front porch.
Didn't she do a great job and don't they look sweet? Thank you, Katie!
I've had this antique, child's ice cream set for years. Last year I used it in the garden "as is." However, this year I decided to give it a little pizazz and protect it from the elements, by painting it. I used a couple of cans of Krylon spray paint. It only took a few minutes to sand and paint and about an hour to dry! I love the color, but now I have to search out the perfect spot for it in the garden.
