Painting day

Today was officially designated as painting day! I thought you might like to see a few of the things that have been hanging around the garage waiting for its' turn at  a new life!

"Imagine"! One of my favorite pass times and judging from all of your creative blogs I think its one of yours too! This was blue, in fact it was a gorgeous blue but it didn't get any takers so we'll try what seems to be more trendy.

I really like this magazine rack. I'm pretty sure its old and as long as its older than me, I think its old. The picture doesn't do it justice. I also love buckets....don't know why.

Another bucket or actually a pot. This would be perfect for a witch's brew! And a cute wire basket, another flea market item I can never pass on.

Check out this old window! My husband turned it into something fabulous for me. I am in the middle of painting it and I will show its big reveal soon. I painted a few other things that I will post asap. I forgot to finish taking pictures. I heard thats a symptom of  middle age I hope it doesnt stay long!

Your right about black being trendy, everyone's gone crazy with the black spray can lately. Not my style at all ... guess I must be old fashioned, I love the warmth of natural timber finishes and the look of polished brass. But if it helps you get rid of your unwanted garage items it's worth the try.
Good Luck 'n' Hugs,

Curious as to what the old window will become. Hmmm

Paint can do wonders. Black is very in...but I'm still always painting everything white!
Love what you said in the previous post. Did you know that 1 out of 7 people in this country are illiterate. Unbelievable and so sad!!!

I enjoyed seeing the items you painted. I love buckets, too. One of my favorite things to do with them is to plant pansies or snapdragons in them. I am looking forward to see what you do with the old window!! Blessings to you. Vicki
