I purchased this rusty looking ivy metal bowl at the local Goodwill for $2.50. The candle holder I pilfered from my stock of holders I purchased from Ikea for Christmas decorating.
Grabbed the two items plus my trusty ORB (Oil Rubbed Bronze) spray paint, painter’s cloth and headed out to the deck. With the threat of rain, I was relieved to know this paint would dry quickly.
Glued the two pieces together with an epoxy adhesive. Easy-breezy! Now I have a cute fruit bowl to hold perfect pear specimens. Albeit the pairs are faux. 🙂 Eventually I think my new creation will end up in the dining room.
Project done, time to put everything away. I had just picked up the painter’s cloth, turned around and saw this snake!!! EEEKKK! Performed a gianormous FREAK dance. Ran inside and checked to make sure all the toilet seats were down. (Really, I was THAT freaked out) Garden snake, rattle snake…same difference to me…EEEKKK! The quality of the picture is poor…do you really think I could hold a camera still at this point…not on your life! 🙂
I have a few more projects in need of painting. I’m glad the forecast is for rain this weekend because it’s going to take me a few days before I want to step foot out in the backyard. 🙂
Ya’ll have a lovely weekend!
