I trash picked this window screen ages ago and it has sat in the garage. There were actually two of them and one has been painted pale blue and is over the sofa in the den.
Sunshine's bedroom only has one window--for that matter, there is one window per room in the whole house except the living room, where there is a picture window and a narrow window so you can see the front door. Anyway, I have some old windows that I was thinking about mounting on the long outside wall with no windows. Until I realized, uh, 9 years old. Infinitely bad idea. BUT, I have the screen. I scrubbed it up today and I won't repaint it, but I will paint the screening. It has some rusty places on it and I have some hammered silver rust inhibitor paint (I LOVE the landfill recycling!) so I'll use that all over the screen.
Please ignore the unmown yard (it's not Friday yet) and the bucket that held soap I cleaned her with).
Now, I'd like her to be able to use to like a bulletin board or something like that to put pics on, but I've not the faintest clue what to use to stick things on. I COULD stick a piece of corkboard on the back, but her walls are pink and it looks rather cute with the pink wall showing through.
Any ideas? I'm stumped on this one.
Cabinet Man and I went to lunch yesterday at Washington's. http://www.thewashbar.com/It's an old burger and beer joint here in town. It's been here at least 25 years as we went there when we lived here before. I should go in and take regular pics of all the stuff hanging up, but this chandy caught my eye.
Here's a close-up. The place is usually dark and, as usual, I'm using my cell.
The light holders look rather like flowers. I was sitting there eyeing it and suddenly told CM, "I'll bet that would look great with the prisms cleaned up, more added and painted white." And usual, I got a cocked eyebrow, then he turned around and looked up and saw what I did.
I can so see that all cleaned up, shined and hanging on a porch. Wouldn't that be amazing and gorgeous? Maybe when I win the lottery I'll go in and make them an offer. Oh wait, in order to win you have to actually PLAY the lottery, right? Sigh. Oh well. But maybe, someday....
