Here it is the last week of June and my Deck is Still Nearly Bare
It's been sitting like this for over two weeks. Last weekend I did bring out my orange wicker table. I have never liked the dull orange color, but I do like that new curly grass I found last week at Home Depot. I think it will come in handy to use in other floral arrangements.
Back to that orange table. Abracadabra...............ca doo................ Two cans of .96 cent black paint and it's transformed. I am thinking that this black and white combo is looking pretty chic. I think I will paint that birdhouse holding the curly grass black tonight.
Once I get the paint out, I tend to paint everything in sight. I actually began by painting this green sponge-painted chicken. Sponge painting is so 80's, don't you think? LOL. Everything I have looked its best in the 1980's--including me! I wish a fresh coat of paint would transform me like this. :) I also grabbed these things which I like, but am not thrilled with the wood look finish. So now they, too, are black. A wiser woman would have put gloves on both hands, not just the right one because when above object tips over one's instinct is to grab it.....not a good idea with bare hands.
I am having great fun with the black paint. I plan to look for more objects tonight.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
