Ok, I cannot paint...it's just a fact....I am NOT an artist, but by gosh I can color in the lines...yes I can!
I found this garden sign at a garage sale on Saturday..I bought the nice iron (though faded) post for a dollar because I know they can be pricy and the nice lady threw in the faded sad looking sign.
As usual, I forgot to take a before photo and I had already begun to repaint and refresh when I remembered. You can see the difference in the leaves etc. It had all faded to a rather interesting stonish gray color...
At first I thought I would throw the sign away..but decided against it and instead of spraying it, I decided to just follow the lines of the raised design. I like the way it turned out..but..as usual, I keep wondering if I should have painted a colorful background.....oh well... maybe next time.
See the before and after?
I left it the grayish color because the stone in front ...is gray..still...I keep thinking...
It's sort of difficult to see so you may want to enlarge, but the metal post the sign is hung on is a very sturdy piece, adorned with leaves etc. It was faded too and dusty black so I spray painted it black enamel..and it turned out really pretty.
So...project finished. Home projects have been something to keep my mind off things.
My daughter Sandy is, of course, not out of the woods..but she has a fantastic attitude, a family that is very supportive and she has her faith. Again...thank you so much for all your prayers, sweet comments and emails.
I knew there were wonderful people in the world, but never did I expect to find such a loving and supportive group of people as I have found in blogging. I thank God for all of you every single day.
