Hi. Just popping in for a minute to show you what I have been working on. Remember last weeks bright red bird house? Well, it has been toned down to fit in with all the primitive decor around here. I painted over it with black just to make sure none of the red came through and then a coat of white on the house and green on the roof. My DD Emily suggested green because she says I paint everything the same and that would be different. I do think it looks neat. I gel stained it, sprayed it with a matte sealer, and topped it off with grapevine and rusty star garland.
Here it is.......
Now I just need to find a spot outside that it won't get too weathered... at least for this year.
I also bought a pattern from Tennessee Ridge Primitives last week. It is her new one. I bought it too soon. She is having a sale this week. Oh, well. Story of my life. It is a crow, star, flag, and banner to be put on a grapevine wreath. I think the crow turned out too big for a wreath at my house so I just stuck him on this old fence I had. I couldn't get the flag or banner to suit me on the fence so I didn't put them on. It is outside but in a protected area so he should be okay.
I started painting the cupboard from way back and a couple of other garage sale finds. When don't I have something sitting around half done? Makes life more interesting that way.
Gotta run for now. Thanks for stopping by. Take care.
