I'm sure many of you have birdbaths sitting around your yard somewhere. This little beauty used to sit up by the arbor with the New Dawn Rose Bush. Monday of this week I decided to move it. After moving it I realized it was ready for a paint job. (searched archives could not find a before picture, trust me it was "ready" for a paint job). I used High Performance by Rust-Oleum, High Gloss Black. I'm hoping the High Performance lasts a little longer than the regular spray.
The bird bath is metal and has a small bird to the back side of it. I wanted to bring it down by the shop door to add a bit more of a welcome. :-))
Just to the left of the birdbath sits a pair of wrought iron chairs I've had for almost 33 years. Can you say vintage? lol. They also got a wirebrush taken to them, a wash down and a good coat of fresh paint. I pulled the small table from the front porch, another coat of fresh paint and Voila' another small sitting area. Not one to leave a tabletop empty I used the small cast iron urn, added a bit of raffia and one of the ghosts pumpkins.
So it's a lot of things. lol Over the course of the past few years I've fallen in love with animals to decorate with around my home, inside and out. This darling squirrel seemed to fill the bill as far as finishing off this sweet vignette area. Made of resin I sprayed him with a sealer to help protect him from the outside elements.
