Ok, this I must try. Splashing black paint on a white painted chest (perhaps purchased on Craigslist? That would be a first for me). How fun to bring a little bit of personal punk into the home! I can actually envision a nice, antique gold mirror above it. So now, in prime summer time, my backyard can be turned into a paint-splash playground. I could have a lot of fun with this!
And who knew that blackish/gray painted wood boards could be turned into a really pretty art composition. Extra nice if the boards have some sentimental meaning. Decorative and a tad masculine, right? (Love the height).
I so regret that I have not saved tickets to rides and shows and events I have been fortunate to be part of all over the world. I am stupid. If I had, I could have created a really fun and personal conversation piece. Tell your kids to start saving tickets to special and memorable adventures – now!
And I hope this is the year when I FINALLY get my act together and get my herb bench! I wrote about it last summer – the idea is so simple, useful and attractive – and now with the sun up high I better turn this into a real project. A little bit of a herb haven where I can easily go and snip, snip, snip some fresh basil and thyme for all of our Alfresco dining. So lovely.
Hugs to you all!
(Yes, yes, yes… I know that I am painfully behind with my blog hopping. Too many distractions. I will get to it.).
