Well, it was a good run. My days finding fabulous castaways at the Goodwill seems to have come to a screeching halt. I have stopped by at least once a week for the last several weeks and have walked back out the door empty handed. Nothing! The good stuff seems to have dried up. I don’t understand it! We have actually donated I can’t tell you how many bags of STUFF over the past few weeks to the Goodwill so why can’t I find any goodies any more??? I was spoiled and didn’t even realize it. So today I needed to dip in to my “inventory”. That is what I call my cardboard box of purchased castoffs that I keep out in the garage. I won’t tell you what my husband calls it. ;)
Today’s project was actually purchased before the holidays. I found this great bird cage and only paid $4.99 for it. It was dirty but in good shape so after scrubbing it down, I proceeded to add a few coats of Rust-o-leum Heirloom White to it. I was fun for me to finally get outside with a can of spray paint. The weather has not been cooperating in the past few months. The temperature needs to be at least 50 degrees with no wind to be able to spray. Today was a good day for it.
I tucked a small pot of ivy into it. Now I just need to get one of those watering cans with a long skinny spout. Otherwise it might die of thirst. It wasn’t easy getting that pot into that cage with out stripping all of the leaves off of the plant. That would have defeated the purpose don’t you think?
