Paint does the trick

I hope I'm not being lame with what I've got to share today, but being that we're still in school with baseball still in full swing (no pun intended), I just haven't been able to play as much as I would like. Believe me, there is quite a list of projects to work on around here.

Anyway, delightful Debbie of Debbiedoos, is part of the Blog Party sponsored by At the Picket Fence. Because I love all things Debbie, I just had to join her party.

Let's see, shall we?

I had this white bucket for a few years now. It was worn & slightly rusty which is in tune with my style, but I heard it tell me loud & clear that it wanted a vibrant new color, like this:

I love it filled with yellow, blue & green flowers.

Now it's something pretty & colorful to go against my front door. Anything to make that ugly blue door look better. Ahem. Moving on.

I had this cute little bird as part of my pool deck decor last year. As you can see the sun was not kind to him at all.

Again, I heard him tell me loud & clear that he wanted a vibrant new color, like this:

I mean, come on now, who wouldn't want to be painted fire engine red with touches of apricot, right?

So that's all I have to share today. Thanks for stopping by. Head over to Debbie's to check out what I'm sure will be some amazing paint projects.
