Our backyard fence is a hodgepodge of old bits that were here when we moved in and new bits we added with scraps from the old house. Eventually we will get around to replacing the whole thing, but it is near the bottom of a veerrrry long list.
I didn’t take any before shots today. I was all caught up in the creative genius of the moment. If I think of an idea, it’s best I spring on it immediately or the moment will pass…especially if the moment involves paint.
For before pics I scrounged these up:
Conrad and Ami helped me. Jeremia came and checked out what we were doing, but determined he had more pressing matters that involved the television.
A and C were both very focussed. It’s been too long since we have done anything artsy and they were in the zone.
We were far from fussy…probably about as far from fussy as you can get without having a paint fight.
We painted around the yard/fence art, shifting it from side to side but never moved anything completely out to the way.
The whole thing from start to clean up took about 30 minutes. Not bad!
I love it, love it, love it! It is so cheery and fun and makes me think of popsicle sticks!
We used the leftover watered-down paint from the batik wind sock project so it was free and resourceful which are two of my favorite things!
