Color My World

I spent a little time in the garage this past weekend making my little world a more colorful place.

See this rusty old rooster planter?  No???  Look harder, he is there, but he just blends into the mulch and wood porch!
I was inspired by Brenda at Cozy Little House.  Her home and garden are filled with bright beautiful colors.  If you click on her link you can see her red rooster.  So I took a can of red spray paint....and voila!

Mr. Rooster really POPS now!

I did a little more spray painting with bright yellow and I will show you that next time...
Welcome Home,

  14. I love him! It just goes to show you what a difference a coat of paint makes. I try to think of that before totally dismissing a diamond in the rough.

    I love this, Penny. I have been on the hunt for a yard sculpture. I saw some I like at the NC State Farmer's Market. I need to make another visit.
