Who needs new when you have spray paint in your garage?!?!?
I used my trusty screw driver to remove it from the brick wall. Threw it on some newspaper in the back yard. A few quick sprays and she was all done. While spraying/fanning/being impatient I realized the vines at the top came right off and so did the hooks at the bottom. It felt too small and sad without the hooks so I left them. Which was perfect because I really wanted to hang something from them. Entire project....12 minutes. Cost....$0.
|I got this awesome "R" from a bridal shower gift topper. Great idea! I just added some new ribbon. It probably wont stay forever but I wanted to give the mailbox some extra love today.|
|I couldn't resist leaving a little note on the inside....it was just too perfect of a space.|
In addition to the newly painted mail box the glass door is now transparent and the porch has been scrubbed and de-bugged. Which included me screaming when a large moth dive bombed my face and I fell off a ladder...I'm fine. The worst part was trying to justify my screaming like a crazy person.
ME:"There was a moth....like a big huge one....not a normal size....it attacked me!"
Mr R: (Shakes head in front yard)
ME: (out of breath) "I'm ok, but there was this moth....it was big.....bird like...."
What we still need:
outdoor pendant light
cute door mat
new address numbers (I can't make up my mind on this one, ideas are appreciated)
What would be nice to have eventually:
A new porch! Ours is so small! That is phase 694.
