Anyway, there was an old bird bath in the backyard and I just didn't have the heart to trash it. I imagine 35 years ago that it was a beautiful looking thing, but over the years it has been neglected and looking well...ugly! Frankly, it was an "eye-sore" to say the least. However, I still couldn't trash it as I am a total bird lover!
I selected the "Ancient Ruins" finish/color and I am pretty happy with that choice. I read the instructions, shook up my cans and got busy spray painting my old, ugly bird bath. I had thought about sanding it to remove all of the chipping paint but then decided to just leave it as I thought it added some "old world" charm and texture to the piece.
While the bird bath still doesn't look 100% perfect, it does look a whole lot better than what it did. The neighbors came over to check it out and now they want to spray the stone paint onto their bird baths too! hahaha! I guess it's true what they say, Gotta keep up with the Jones'.
Well there you have it, my little home remodeling update for this week! Next week I will share some before/after photos of the new master bathroom and hubby is about 1/2 way done with the kitchen remodeling project. I will get some photos of that too!
