my darling husband has been carting an antique fence section through our multitudinous moves for many years now. i always said 'it is so perfect for something. i just don't know what yet.' and here it is. i have been thinking about making a backdrop for my vintage shop and now i have one. it's a fold up deal with a base. this way i can set it up where ever the light is best or even outside. first, ev cut the fence to size and then i painted it because it had an awful dried blood red paint on it. i painted a few coats of the base color - a creamy vanilla white - to cover the red really well. then i added the pale blue.
this is my nifty keep your paint can and your painter happy idea. i protected the can seal by placing tape over the ridge so that it wouldn't fill up with paint.
then, when you are done --- you simply pull the tape off and discard it. and you have a lovely, clean paint can top as you see in the first photo of today's post. that is the can after i had painted. and it is now sealed back up perfectly. and neatly. and happily. like magic but really just sharp thinking.
hers is one photo i took using my new backdrop. if you'd like to see a few more please visit my joonE shop: www.joonE.etsy.com i like the way it turned out. for a first time idea it is fine by me. today i went to my second sign language class. it is fun but i can't share photos so i have these which i owed you for a few days anyway. hope you enjoyed today's post.
sweet dreams, everyone. thanks for stopping by. until tomorrow. happiness to you. from me. with heart. ox joon
