Last summer I painted several different items like this.
Now my Carriage House looks like this.
According to Paul Douglas at Kare 11, we have gotten 57″ of snow so far this winter and about 24″ remain on the ground. Looks like more to me, but he’s talking official measurements. I prefer to go with 5 or 6 feet on the ground, which is what it feels like.
The lovely shabby park bench that I left out last fall, thinking it would be cute for winter decorating, is completely buried. There is a fab vintage watering can and a rusty old street sign for “Fountain Ave” under there somewhere.
But, I am counting my blessings. I have the most amazing neighbors, Ken on one side, Karen across the street. They come over and snow blow my driveway every time. Just because they are those kind of people. The kind that help the neighbors out of the goodness of their hearts. Really, I am lucky to have these people in my life.
So, I can just admire the amazing beauty of winter until my nose gets too cold, and then go inside and start painting more furniture. And on that note, I must return to the dresser that I’m trying to paint in MMS Trophy and getting bleed thru from the orange stain. I’m going to try Miss Mustard Seed’s method of applying a little wax and trying again. Wish me luck!
